Some Microsoft enthusiasts create their very own concepts imagining Windows 10 features, and today it’s Windows XP’s turn. It’s been more than four years since Windows XP support officially came to an end. While Microsoft has stopped patching the old operating system and the company has also asked the users to upgrade to Windows 10, but it still remains one very popular choice for PC users across the world.

A YouTuber has created a new concept titled “Windows XP 2018 Edition Concept” which imagines the 16 years old platform with a whole new interface. The new Windows XP features a start menu from Windows 10 but the elements resemble the look and feel of the old OS.

The conceptual Windows XP features a modern looking user interface elements, and the taskbar has been also redesigned. Despite the modification, the concept still resembles the classic Windows XP and it looks really nice.

Windows XP is still quite popular as in the past few months it actually gained market share, and while we’re getting closer to its complete demise, there are still some users operating the old platform.

Microsoft launched Windows XP on October 25, 2001. It became one of the most successful Windows versions in history. After 17 years of its debut, the platform is still being used by many.

Windows XP was a critical update as it represented a major overhaul of Microsoft’s Windows operating. It is the pillar of Windows 7 and Windows 10 interface. While the interactive interface was the primary reason for Windows XP’s success, the marketing also helped the platform to grow as it made sure everyone was aware of the features it included.

It’s been more than four years since the company stopped rolling out updates, but there are many Windows XP users who are not ready to give up yet. However, it’s likely that the platform will lose market share as it is vulnerable.

Windows XP is vulnerable to the majority of attacks, and its popularity apparently affects everyone due to the fact that the operating system is still being used by authorities and government across the world.
