I noticed that yesterday too. I wasn't sure if I was the only one on the old OS's lol. I'm on XP.

I've noticed that it reminds me everytime I start up Chrome.

Yep that is the most annoying thing the reminder that your OS is old and we have given up support on that OS and the next one in-line will be Win7, though I see XP has had extended support in the last 2 years.

Win7 will be supported for a while with chrome, vista got ended early due to the low userbase on it.  Noone should be using XP anymore if they have sense.

I totally agree I also have a XP desktop in the house all the guts upgraded CPU RAM but the DVD drive is not working would love to update this to Win8 or Win10 without having to pay for a new licence sorry MS that is a bad word in your books  :o
