[quote="Gorilla no baka"] [quote=guenter] A dying species, their OS provider has (unlike IBM) the policy that an OS has a life cycle of 5 years */-. No security updates after that, no updates for shipped apps like players and most of all [b]NO NEW COMPILERS[/b] which should take care of those that are too [i]"stubborn"[/i]. And that are not buying new hardware for one reason or the other. If they put now $$ into circulation they deserve no better. [/quote] No problem..there is allways linux which beats the crap out of MS anyawy from security point of view.. [quote=guenter] Some PPL at Mozilla.org openly endorsed this policy. Because they deserve no support. Reason. No OS updates means that these PCs are likely to be infected, potential bots and a danger to their owners and especially the rest of internet community. [/quote] That`s mainly bollocks and they know it...Most of the time a guy who hangs on to his old pc with old software knows his stuff,And therefore the chances that the computer to become A Target for boots and stuff is minor.. [quote=guenter] They do their duty and buy hard and software (like well earning young IT nerds). Best force them because they do not have the common sense to buy new hard and software when it is time to move. [/quote] That makes sense, because is all about money after all... [quote=guenter] Consolation for PPL that are on old PCs and OSs. After most of those that can afford have moved; it will be even less interesting for bot-net and other malware coders to [i][b]"support"[/b][/i] them and their obsolete systems. :P [/quote] L.o.l that`s mainly true...And anyway do not forget that there is ALWAYS LINUX. Do not chuck out old computers only because they are not able to run Vista or Windows 7. INSTALL LINUX ON THEM INSTEAD ADD COMPIZ FUSION, BERYL AND CALL ALL YOUR FRIENDS WITH Vista or 7 and show them what is all about!! For real old hardware that can not run windows 2000 or XP there is Puppy linux which loads completly in as little as 35 MB ram and run from there ..RESULT...BALZING FAST.. Heck if you want compiz there are even Puppys with Compiz there.. Bottom line DO NOT CHUCK OUT OLD HARDARE ONLY BECAUSE SOMEBODY UP THERE SAID SO..[/quote]
