One of our readers need your help solving a problem they are having. "We see Microsoft will stop supporting Windows XP next year. The PC-based controls we've deployed over the years — some with RT kernels, some without — range from Windows CE to Windows 7 and more than a few NT in between. We don't have any real problems with the systems we have out there, and we don’t worry too much about installing updates that might upset a old but stable system. We'll suggest an updated OS usually when a customer buys a new machine or has a hardware failure or performance reason to upgrade. Have we missed something?"
