Violence has resolved more conflicts than anything else. The contrary opinion that violence doesn't solve anything is merely wishful thinking at its worst.
When Nero used Christians as human torches, that was the only time they brought any light into the world.
Mankind will never be free to progress and advance to its destined position as the pre-eminent intelligent species in the galaxy until the last stone from the last church is cast down onto the last priest.

Good question, but I bet you a shit ton of EQ players still use XP and Vista, because hardcore boxers usually build bare minimum cheap ass potatoes to box EQ on.

So yeah, I'd fully expect a shit storm once this happens. Its actually happening next week apparently.

Anyway, this is good because people need to be on Windows 10. Anything behind Windows 10 is becoming more and more insecure/abandonware by the month.

Well, isn't Windows 7 the only other OS being updated with any regularity? I know XP is abandoned. What about Vista? Windows 8?

I heard about this and its pretty lametastic. I have been needing a new puter for quite a while now so this just may be the thing to push me over the hump. Ive gone 2 years now with only paying for 2 of my 4 accounts so these days Its just me and my shaman out there. Heh still relying on old C from my chanter who is only 105 ahhh well.

You mentioned security. 8 & 7 should still see security releases. I don't know if any new attacks on either of those OSs.
