A Hack To Make Windows XP Supported

Windows support

Windows Support Information

You might be aware by now that the software maker has abandoned Windows XP. We are talking about the end of Windows support for the aging operating system. The operating system has been around for around 13 years and it seems that the company has had it with XP. No Windows support means the operating system users will not be receiving any kind of official support, technical or non-technical assistance, feature updates, and security packs either paid or non-paid. The world’s leading software maker has removed Windows XP from the list of supported products.

Yeah, all this is true. But, it seems Windows XP cannot be not easily killed, which explains its over-a-decade life span.  The Redmond based software giant did overlook something. An OS flaw is being exploited many. The flaw blew holes through all Windows XP operating system versions revealing a way to extend the life of Windows XP. Yes, Windows XP is not dead yet. You can easily extend its support for five more years.  Again, all this is available for free.

This happened when Microsoft was trying so hard to get rid of the old operating system. The company is not intending to do anything about it and they are also not planning to change their update servers or anything. The extended life span was a gift from some hacker. It was a hacker, who spotted that a simple hack can increase the life of Windows XP. The simple tweak exploits the software maker’s continued support of Windows Embedded Industry versions. You might know it by its previously used name Windows Embedded POSReady. Windows Embedded POSReady support will last until 2019, so the hack makes use of this to extend Windows XP’s life.

Windows Support Ends

Embedded Industry has been designed for use in various industry devices. We are talking about those computer terminals used in manufacturing, retail, health care and many other industries. You might have already guessed this – Windows Embedded POSReady is based on Windows XP. It is actually based on XP Service Pack 3.

A simple hack can make it possible to direct the patches meant for Windows Embedded POSReady to Windows XP system. This way, you can enjoy the official Windows XP support.

Though many users who have tried the hack say that it works fine, many things are not yet known. Your system might become unstable. So, if you are willing to take that risk, you can use the hack to receive support till 2019.

Small Breather For Windows Phone 7.8 OS

Microsoft Support

Microsoft Windows Phone 7

Windows Phone 7 users were in for a disappointment when the information came that there will be no updates for the Windows Phone 8 operating system. Users wishing to do so will have to purchase a new Windows 8 handset in order to enjoy the features of Windows 8. However, to appease these Windows 7 users, Microsoft released the Windows Phone 7.8 Update soon after, bringing in certain new appearance and performance tweaks.

In this new OS, users had the ability to customize the Start screen, by increasing the size of the Live Tiles. Small, medium or large tiles are available for download, available with a fully customizable Start screen. Moreover, this new OS features more info display, like the text of new messages or details on appointments. Small ones make it easy to access stuff within just a few clicks. In addition to this, Windows 7.8 OS featured many display updates, bringing in a plethora of color choices to light up your phone. To mention just a few, the Windows 7.8 OS features twice the number of accent colors (20) and lock screen images directly from Bing.

For unknown reasons, Microsoft has recently extended the mainstream support for its old Windows Phone 7.8 operating system. The extension, which happened without any sort of announcement, is just by a few more weeks. Initially supposed to end in September 9, Microsoft Windows Phone 7.8 mainstream support has been extended to October 14. This extension of more than a month, means that Microsoft Support for both security and feature patches will be available for almost an extra month.

Microsoft Os For Phones

This means users of Lumia 510, 610, 800, and 900 as well as the LG Optimus 7 and the HTC Titan II now have a reason to rejoice. The exact intention of extending the support, that too for such short time duration, is still unclear. The only logical conclusion is that Microsoft support is providing one final patch before ending the Mainstream support for these devices forever.

Windows 7 OS for phones had a brief and unremarkable lifespan, especially in comparison to the Windows Phone 8 OS. Not to upset the existing Windows Phone 7 users, but the upgrade from Windows Phone 7 to Windows Phone 8 is frankly impossible since both OS versions have different kernels. This means, after October 14, the Windows Phone 7.8 OS, as we know it, will cease to exist. After the date, Windows Phone 7 OS will run on extended support, which means only security patches will be available.
