    Still surprised MS released an XP patch...

    That is just more justification for misguided management to not upgrade those systems...

    Management: "See even though MS says it is obsolete, they will still fix it if something big comes up."

    I don't care about the XP patch, I care about the server 2003 patch.

    There are old applications that only work on those old platforms, and not all of them have an upgrade option.

    It's ugly, but that's life.

    I agree. But I will also say that I have no sympathy for organizations that aren't very actively moving applications and systems off of unsupported platforms because it is too hard or too expensive.

    In the one case I'm thinking of... it's because they paid an ERP vendor a ton of money for features they simply haven't gotten in 5 years.

    They're having to use the old ERP for a stupid part list export that gets imported into the new system. It's absurd... all because the new financial module cannot do job costing properly.

    Trust me, we all want that old fragile system gone, every time I fart around the thing it crashes.

    So even when you do everything right, sometimes you still get screwed.
