Dropping client support for XP
Bad choice, I am sorry to say. I can understand them drastically dropping vista or windows 2008 32 bit server, but frankly most office environments are full of xp machines, that are reliable and stable computers. I don't see why FM 13 at least shouldn't run there, and you can't really expect to host them in FM12 and access the new features problem free. Nor can you demand that some tens of xp installs are upgraded to seven.
