Today, we're announcing the end of Chrome's support for Windows XP, as well as Windows Vista, and Mac OS X 10.6, 10.7, and 10.8, since these platforms are no longer actively supported by Microsoft and Apple. Starting April 2016, Chrome will continue to function on these platforms but will no longer receive updates and security fixes.

Yet another reason for those few stragglers to finally dump that silly excuse for an operating system called Windows XP, and move towards something newer. Windows XP was dreadful the day it got released, and has only become more so over the years. Really - there's no excuse.

Not necessarily. Some older NUMA systems required software to be explicitly aware, but AMD's and Intel's implementations don't require this - memory access that have to go over HT/QPI will still get fulfilled without the software having to do anything different.
