Mozilla & Gecko clones Still holding on to Windows 2000, XP RTM or XP SP1? No more Firefox for you, my friend - Mozilla has just upped its minimum supported Windows version to Windows XP SP2. In addition, support for Firefox 3.6 will end April 24. Asa Dotzler presents Opera as an alternative for you crazy people still on Windows 2000, XP RTM or XP SP1.

OK, so I guess I have less than 50% of a proverbial "clue" - I am running XP on 3 (three) computers out of 6. XP SP3 mind you, but XP nevertheless.

And in all seriousness I do not understand why is it NOT OK to run a legacy OS on perfectly functional legacy hardware? Why do I have to "upgrade" a 5 - 6 year old box to the newest OS just because it's what everybody does? If OS security is up to date, which it still is, and OS features are adequate for my needs, why do I have to spend more money, pray tell?
