i am fully aware that this is not so easy in every case

but when i am the IT guy and i take responsibility the stuff is running 
i can not and will not setup something where i know doing so would be 
irresponsible and nothing else than a timebomb and when it explodes i 
have to suck collecting the pieces

frankly "Windows XP" - which braindead idiots are using still such 
outdated crap, that was somehow rencent (and not brand new) when i 
changed to work in the IT and is now nearly *10 years* ago when i 
decided to never touch any Microsoft OS in the future and even don't 
support any Windows machine within my own family

*10 years* and we talk about *IT and not museum*
