Windows XP is finally DEAD, right? Er, not quite. Here's what to do if you're stuck with it

When NT4 support no longer provided, how many people still using it? Nowaday xp is used by 27% PCs globally, and more than 67% of all PC in China, i.e. more than 300 million PCs in China alone are still running XP, and there're still some new PC with xp installed (even if those PC might be ivy bridge) selling all over China. Is that the case of NT4?

The... Windows... XPocalypse... is... NIGH

Re: Microsoft missed an opportunity here...

Microsoft does have an option like this, but only receiving application from very large company and had already set plan to migrate away from XP, and charging 200USD per machine for the first year, 400 for second, 800 for third etc., and it had been subscribed by UK and Germany government and etc.

Unhappy

the model of cpu it used is Rockchip RK3066

which 1. I had and only had see this chip in Chinese unbranded tablet before, so I suspect this tablet is a Chinese OEM product, 2. itonly run at 1.6GHz when benchmarking and in daily use it rarely run faster than 1.2GHz and that make its performance difference fron other tablet larger than what's on paper. Also, MX Player is the video player that best utilize these chips in my opinion.

p.s. if it is really a ODM/OEM from Chinese manufacturer, I would said that the current pricr of this tablet is overpriced by 300% even it is under the brand HP. There are tablets with similar hardware spec costing only 299CNY=48.6USD/31.9GBP in China with the only few differences are the logo printed on it and the beats and print app preloaded that can otherwise be manually flashed into the tablet.
