So what if MS  stops security updates for  XP.....
I have xp pro running on all of my stand alone audio work stations...  none of them are on line !
Just like 10's of thousand corporate computers are running XP  isolated from the internet as long as XP runs the existing internal programs MS dropping support doesnt matter.
My work stations are running Intel I3 with 8 gigs of ram .... more than xp knows what to do with  but they run 12-18 hours a day and never blink.
Just run XP off line and  save the hassel of  finding replacement programs .

 Hi Tom,
 
 If you or anyone is still using WinXP you should really try
 to be rid of it within the next nine months. That's when
 Microsoft will remove all support, which most importantly
 means security support, for XP:
 
 http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/endofsupport.aspx
 
 "After April 8, 2014, there will be no new security updates,
 non-security hotfixes, free or paid assisted support options
 or online technical content updates..."
 
 If anyone's XP equipment talks to a network in any way,
 you'll want to replace it, upgrade the OS, or keep it
 entirely disconnected from the Internet from that time
 forward.  I can only imagine the security holes the hacker
 community is keeping in their pockets until April 9, 2014. 
 You really don't want to find out what those might be.
 
 Personally I'm also a big advocate of Macs as well, enhanced
 security being one significant benefit.
