Microsoft simply cannot afford to stop supporting XP

by Volker Weber

Microsoft blinked.

There is an Internet Explorer exploit in the wild and Microsoft has provided a fix. Not only for supported versions of Windows, but also for XP. This is exactly what I expected to happen when Microsoft announced EOL for XP. Microsoft simply cannot afford leaving Windows vulnerable. It would damage the brand.

Many years ago, Microsoft insisted that Internet Explorer is part of Windows. That was a bad idea.
