As i read the 4.2 Changenotes, i noticed the “upcoming” Windows XP support, i am a bit shocked. Not that i don’t like the system, but support ENDED, no user should start using this system (if you already use it, that’s another story). But everybody should switch.
I just fear that:
a) The UE4 developers might limit themself, trying to bring as much as possible to the old Windows XP(as they already need to implement OpenGL for W-XP, or is it already an alternative in general for Windowsmachines?)
B) To many user decide to keep their XP, because with UE4 their is a new possiblity for great games on this system, and becoming an easy target, this way.
Just 2 of my concerns. Maybe from a developing point of view, it’s not as much work as i think it is. (i doubt that, as it needs extra testing)
