You really bugging out over an extinct OS? go linux if you can not afford Vista (which is going to be extinct as well) 7 or 8.1.

Some people think that going to Windows 7 from XP is the end of the world. Most of these people say they cannot afford it, but I'll bet most of these people are the same people who spend $5 at Starbucks a few times a week.

Well,  have  J got to buy nvidia ? Is it really so hard to support Win XP in new R7 and R9. Is AMD so reach to loose all XP users?



Yes, AMD is rich, they can easily use that 2 people who still wants to use XP with modern hardware.

I don't think it supports direct PCI lane access, you he won't be able to install the TV tuner in there, which defeats the purpose. However, Win7 has drivers for these old TV tuner cards and they work fine with WMC. Even my good old Pinnacle PCTV Stereo does.

It's not about being able to afford it or not. We're talking about windows here and individuals, not companies, if you know what I mean. Some people just don't like it.

This. However, old hardware is a good excuse. I got this x1650 Pro a few days ago and its performance is approx. 30% less under win7/vista compared to XP. Still these old cards still have their XP drivers done, so it doesn't really matter. XP shouldn't be used with new hardware, that's certain.

Go to AMD Income Statement for 2012. It doesn`t look well. 2013 looks worse. Revenue for 2Q 2012 1,41B $, for 2Q 2013 1,16B $. Maybe they are wrong because win xp is still installed on 33% PCs, win 7- 45%, win 8- 7%
