Blizzard Dropping Windows XP and Vista

Battle.net announces Blizzard will start dropping support for Windows XP and Windows Vista beginning later thins year. Here's the plan:
Starting later this year, we will begin the process of ending support for Windows XP and Windows Vista in World of Warcraft, StarCraft II, Diablo III, Hearthstone, and Heroes of the Storm. Microsoft ceased mainstream support for these versions of Windows in 2009 and 2012, respectively, but since a decent portion of our audience was still using them at the time, we continued supporting them. However, there have been three major Windows releases since Vista, and at this point, the vast majority of our audience has upgraded to one of the newer versions.

After these older operating systems are no longer supported, the games will not run on them, so we encourage any players who are still using one of the older OSes to upgrade to a newer version. We’ll be rolling out this change on a staggered schedule, and will post further notices as we get closer to making the change for each game.

Windows XP, not only is it much more secure <snip>

Nope. Especially now.

Bear in mind that what you don't know can hurt you, and you'll never be notified about XP vulnerabilities. Why? Because it's not supported anymore.
