Joany, molasses runs quicker if you heat it - much more of the same treament seems suitable for MSE.
A lot has been made of the fact that M$ no longer support XP, when in fact they do and will continue to do so until 2019.
by tricking your home edition of XP into thinking its Windows Embedded POSReady means you get updates for the next five years.

It's called a 'revenue stream'.
