    There is a new rumor that Microsoft is going to rename XP to Windows 9.

    Go for it

    Who said StartUbuntu will wait all that long?
    StartUbuntu did not yet start the real fun. Once we're done from Windows XP, we shall start with Windows Vista, 7 and 8 and just for the record, there is an HP Laptop sitting on my left side waiting for breathing new life instead of Windows 8.1

    For me, I am not focusing on Windows XP only, I am ready to wipe any Windows Version and install Linux. But yes, my highest priority now is Windows XP.

    Hi Ali, we seem to meet everywhere

    I just subscribed to this thread due to a response here:

    https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...e/+bug/1205643

    Please look at Andrea's posts.

    I think there is some confusion regarding support cycles and such

    Well... Me too.
    I was going to migrate to Lubuntu.

    I have an old pc, which is 11 years old now.
    It's still running on windows xp sp 1
    Really bad.. It's absolutely slow, being cursed by viruses, and much more.

    And this year, we gotta say goodbye to our xp, or we won't get Microsoft's support anymore

    It seems you were not using their support anyway since you are still on SP1. and no wonder PC is full of malware since you never patched the big holes that can be patched.

    I really hope the Xubuntu developers will keep these new arrivals in mind when they're putting 14.04 together. While Xubuntu is NOT "aimed at users of older hardware" anymore, a lot of folks with older computers are about to join our ranks in search of a "tradional desktop" that will run on their modest machines. And/or, I really hope the Lubuntu developers will make their next release more "workable and usable" and less buggy.

    I just replaced Lubuntu - which IS "for older computers" - with Xubuntu on my former WindowsXP machine because Abiword continuously crashed, video would not play (even after installing and reinstalling restricted-extras and such), and while it recognized my printer, it refused to load and print anything. Xubuntu did all that stuff automatically.

    I would hate to see the 'buntu family miss out on a great influx of new users because one is too heavy for the older hardware and the other is too buggy and halting to be useful.
