I am just about to buy myself an old laptop
that runs XP. I want it only for navigation
on board: it will basically run 4 programs:
- Outlook express
- Mailasail's Teleport
It will never be connected to the internet
except through a Sat phone
to pick up weather
reports and send the odd email
. All the auto-updating etc will be turned off.
To achieve this, a cheap
BUT, I know that XP is now no longer supported by Microsoft. My fear is that OpenCPN
will also abandon support for XP
Can you please reassure me that there are no plans to drop XP support for a long time?
PS Does O require SP3 to run?
