XP was released almost 16 years ago, on 25th of October, 2001. It is
now considered to be an outdated operating system. Microsoft stopped
supporting this system 3 years ago, because potential hardware
capabilities could no longer be realized on Windows XP due to technical
Being an outdated system, Windows XP features a number of dangerous vulnerabilities, one of which was recently revealed by the WannaCry encryptor. That is why:
versions of MetaTrader 4 and MetaTrader 5 will continue to work on
these systems, but will not be able to receive updates after 01 October
2017. Also, installers will not run on these operating systems.
Which hardware capabilities you cannot realize in MT4/5? Especially in MT4, which you have stopped developing (?)
Systems that were exposed to WannaCry were All windows systems, including Windows 10.
For all of these systems were released patches, including Windows XP.
So it's a bad argumentation.
The good argumentation is - this is the extremely fast and lightweight operating systems. And they are sufficient for all daily tasks.
So I would like to ask you to not stop support.
It is not good to stop support for XP.
People are forced to upgrade, so they need new hardware,
and have to spend lots of money and work.
Metatraders run on XP very well.
MetaQuotes makes things easier for themselves
when terminating XP support, and make Bill Gates even richer.
I am not glad about it.
