    Computerworld - Microsoft last week painted Windows XP consumer and small business customers into an even smaller corner when it said it could not recommend that they upgrade to Windows 8.1, the update to Windows 8 slated to ship Oct. 18.

    "Windows 8.1 is not designed for installation on devices running Windows XP or Windows Vista," said Brandon LeBlanc, a company spokesman, in a Sept. 17 blog announcing the retail prices for Windows 8.1.

    Aa for me there is not any necessity to stop using XP. I've worked with it for the long time and it would be a pity if I should change my OS.

    The win8pro retail copy I own I might install on my secondary machine provided the 8.1 reviews are decent. It's either everyone loves it (minus metro) or everyone hates it. Will install start8 as well.
