Guess who voted fot XP? :wink:
I expected to be overwhelmed (well, ok, it's always 3 vs 1, but...). instead, very few voted at all.
Should I argue that many don't care about it either way?

Anyway, I can not blame you too much, should you decide to drop XP. I'm going the way of dinosaur. :(
After all, the current version is not bad at all. Even stopping here the XP development branch, I think I could survive long enough until I'll dispose of my old faithful XP computer.
Just in case it isn't clear: windows 10 do not attract me too much...

Yes, I suspected it would be you ;). The problem is that supporting XP becomes an issue. Latest Microsoft Visual Studio already stopped supporting it (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/cpp/po ... ew=vs-2019). On top of it, the installer we use, InnoSetup, no longer supports XP and 2003, so we can't use their new features included in newer versions. The list can go on...

Yes, I know, and, as I wrote, I can not blame you.
Thanks for having endured 'till now.
