If you've been procrastinating when it comes to moving on from these OSs and you still use Firefox and/or Steam, it might be time to reconsider your options.

Interesting.
Not surprising because of age and low usage of XP and Vista, though.

I still use Firefox on a Linux OS, just updated to V 62.
But don't like it as much as pre Quantum FF.
With Linux desktop numbers lower than XP, I guess I'm just lucky someone at Mozilla seems to favor Linux :cool:

At least there's extended life beyond 2018 for Linux, Johnny. Not so much with XP and Vista, and rightly so. I loved the former, hated the latter, but each has had its time in the sun.

I'm running Windows XP Pro SP3 32-bit in my spare desktop for testing purposes, and am using the Mozilla Firefox 52.9.0 ESR browser.
I'm aware that support for it ended this month, but I will probably continue using it until all security updates end in April 2019.
I have 7 August and 11 September 2018 security updates to install in it this week.

I'll always have fond memories of XP, Frank. Just think: it will be closing in on 18 years old when the updates finally come to an end!
