    Saturday | The Oak Ridge Observer

    And yet, despite Microsoft ending mainstream support for XP and Vista in 2009 and 2012 , Blizzard has continued to support World of Warcraft, StarCraft 2, Diablo 3, Hearthstone, and even Heroes of the Storm under the decrepit operating systems.

    Thursday Feb 23 | [H]ard OCP

    This information is essentially for trivia purposes only, since I can't imagine how anyone could live with 4GB of user addressable memory in 2017, but AMD is officially killing off driver support for the 32-bit version of Windows 8.1 .
