If you’re an XP user, or know some XP users, there's a trick which makes it possible to receive security updates for the aging OS for another five years -- right up until April 2019.
The workaround makes use of updates for Windows Embedded Industry (formerly known as Windows Embedded POSReady). This is based on Windows XP Service Pack 3, and the security updates which are being released for it are essentially the same ones Microsoft would have pushed out for XP, if it was still doing so.
This trick only works for 32-bit editions of XP, but there's a workaround for 64-bit versions here.
