No Photoshop for you!
If you're one of the folks is still running Windows XP but still likes to keep up-to-date with the latest version of Photoshop, Adobe has drawn a line in the sand. Adobe has announced that Photoshop CS6 will be the last major version of Photoshop that will offer support for the Windows XP operating system.
Adobe says that all subsequent Photoshop feature updates, specifically for Creative Club members, offer no support for Windows XP. Adobe says that advances available on newer operating systems and hardware will allow it to leverage the operating system to deliver better performance and focus innovation efforts around areas beneficial to its customers.
Adobe says that Photoshop CS6 has already demonstrated that relying on modern operating systems, graphics cards, and graphics drivers can provide substantial improvements in certain tools such as 3-D, Blur Gallery, and Lighting Effect features. These improvements are not available to Windows XP users.
Adobe says that customers using Windows XP right now need to begin making migration plans to take advantage of future Photoshop innovations.

They're waiting that long?

They're waiting until
CS6 to stop Win XP support?? Why are they waiting that long? There are several companies that already have skipped out on XP support. Why did they bother to support it on the latest version? They're just prolonging people using that old, insecure OS.
(I'm not knocking Win XP. It was great before Win 7 came out, but it has been superseded. Win 7 is better is every way: more secure, more stable, looks and acts better, supports more modern features. It was great while it lasted, but it is long past time to move on. Unfortunately, I'm typing this on a company laptop that is still running Win XP, and I want out of it.)
