Why Still Use Windows XP & RadioDJ?

While trying to give help and advice to someone struggling to get MySQL talking to the RadioDJ webscript the user let it slip that he’s still using Windows XP.

That explains a lot it’s nearly 3 months since Microsoft stopped supporting that as an OS.

Further to that it’s bound to be full of security holes that Microsoft won’t be patching anytime soon.

Seriously if you are still using XP on an old computer theres going to be hardware conflicts if you try installing newer hardware.

What’s likely to happen there is lots of “Blue Sceens of death” and no one wants them.

It’s probably time you splashed out on a newer system and operating system. You can get a decent tower for around £200 ($340) from Amazon.

RadioDJ seems to work rather well on Windows 7.

I believe it also works on Windows 8 once you’ve activated all the .NET compents and updated Visual basic.

If your serious about Internet radio you want to be able to get the best performance out of your PC so things run smoothly.

Time to take a sledgehammer to that old tower!!
