              <p>Today I noticed that even my bank is warning people to
                not do internet banking with Windows XP.</p>
              <p>If it is no longer secure enough for online banking
                it's CERTAINLY not secure enough to run a wallet (for a
                node only it would be ok-ish as they have no keys to
                protect).</p>
            </div>
          </div>
          Any opinions on what to do here? Just warn and allow the user
          to continue? Redirect them to a 'Windows XP is dangerous'
          message on <a moz-do-not-send="true"
            href="http://bitcoin.org">bitcoin.org</a>? (Microsoft uses <a
            moz-do-not-send="true"

        <div>The drawback of dropping XP support completely would be
          that a lot of computers (especially in China and Russia etc)
          are still running XP, so this could cause the network to lose
          nodes.<br>
        </div>
        <div><br>
          If you're maintainer of other wallet software: how are you
          handling this?<br>
        </div>
        <div>Are you going to drop XP support completely? If so,
          starting from when?<br>

    I think we should get to the bottom of this.&nbsp; Should we assume that
    xp is not secure enough?&nbsp; What is this warning?&nbsp; Who is issuing this
    warning?<br>
