Microsoft recently discontinued support of over 300 million or more computers(statistic unknown), asking people to migrate to the new windows 8 and windows 8.1. This is unfair to computer users as most computers built on the Xp operating system can only run on Xp efficiently. Most xp computers have an average of 2 gb of RAM or less, which is the bare minimum. What this means is that the computer will only be able to support the system functions and any other program might crash the computer. however, earlier models of the Xp generation computers can have as low as 514 mb of RAM. This means that millions of people cant get a new OS for their computer, effectively making their then expensive computer unusable and outdated. users can still run the Xp OS but at great risk, if anything were to happen to your computer it may not be able to be fixed. Those who do have a high end computer will have to pay $119.99 dollars for the new operating system, and their computer safety. I say Microsoft should offer discounts on new computers to replace the outdated Xp computers that millions of us own. or offer a striped down free upgrade to a windows 8 OS, one using less features but the same concept. Or they could simply return support to the Xp OS and have it over with. To compare, I will put up the requirements of all 4 of the recent windows Os.
