Yup, I’ve got a laptop (the one I rely on for public deformances with VSTi’s oozing incredible angel trumpet and deviled trombones) that I changed out the memory on, hit BSOD’s and simply gave up for the night. Sadly, while XP has proven itself as one of the more reliable operating systems, like Win2000, it too shall be hurled off the cliff and into the la Brea tarpits of OS’s.
I hear it every freakin’ day now.. “XP isn’t going to be supported after yada-yada-yada.” So, I’ve already been trying out Win7 and ‘fixing’ Win8/8.1 on a daily basis. Humlbe opinion, it’s not as bad as you might fear, but in simple terms that we still use oftener than not, windows sucks and only marginally less than a Mac, which has me looking at a Mac laptop with genuine Firewire ports on it. Yup, it’s that bad..

"I couldn't possibly fail to disagree with you less."
It is written
"Racism is the lowest, most crudely primitive form of collectivism. It is the notion of ascribing moral, social or political significance to a man's genetic lineage — the notion that a man's intellectual and characterological traits are produced and transmitted by his internal body chemistry. Which means, in practice, that a man is to be judged, not by his own character and actions, but by the characters and actions of a collective of ancestors." — Ayn Rand
