So all Microsoft security flaws being patched for XP at it's deadline have to do with Office/IE/Publisher none of which I use anyway nor plan to do so.

I'd think if you use XP in a limited account, use Chrome with adblock plus, you should be able to run XP just fine for general use. I keep reading these "chicken little" articles, some even saying ATM's are at risk "from hackers in dark rooms" when they'd actually need a USB direct connection and I think it's a little paranoid and ridiculous.

Yeah pretty much if someone has USB access to any OS it's going to be a lot more vulnerable in general potentially. I use Mozilla and adblock, but really any web browser that isn't IE will be much safer.

Well Windows 9 better have something in terms of keeping the XP and Classic Skins, and not another Steve Balmer Windows 8 setup and Touch Screen Requirement system.
