Vladimir Putin 'still uses obsolete Windows XP' despite Microsoft no longer releasing updates for it since 2014


I used to think XP was quite good. Us older ones sometimes have trouble getting to grips with the newer technology.



Official Kremlin photos showed Putin sitting by a desktop at Moscow residence. 

The screen's blue taskbar suggested that Putin is still using the outdated XP. 

Microsoft no longer provides support and warns that XP may be more vulnerable

Well done Putin. I've got Windows 10, but I'm baffled as to what the advantages of it are compared to older Windows operating systems....:-)

10 is an improvement over 7 or 8, but XP is still the most reliable - ask a local computer nerd - and XP isn't vulnerable now to the worst virus of all, the Windows update virus.

Couldn't the USA intelligence services hack into Putin's laptop (or phone) and plant child porn. Dirty setup. Get arrested Russian police.
