Today's the day folks. If you're still using WINDOWS XP (gawd help you), it's unsupported by Microsoft from here on out. May I suggest you switch to Linux? It's free and beautiful. Check out say, Ubuntu: http://www.ubuntu.com/ -- or Elementary OS: http://elementaryos.org/ -- or some other flavor: http://goo.gl/hnbgH. A wonderful world awaits you!

+Allen Edwards: the Linux application used to run Windows programs is called Wine. Wine appears to run TurboTax: http://goo.gl/fE02GZ. Wine has worked in 90% of my past experience.

The applications +Richard Fletcher mentioned (Visio and iTunes) have opensource alternatives available on many distributions in a software center not much different then Android's "The Play Store" or Apple's "App Store" on handheld devices. In fact, the applications available in the Ubuntu Software Center are searchable here: https://apps.ubuntu.com/cat/.

Steam does in fact run on Linux, and Gabe Newell has said, "Linux is the future of gaming" http://goo.gl/HUXzco - Newell has also said CS GO is coming to Linux: http://goo.gl/1ObgoQ

I recommended Ubuntu and Elementary because they are probably the most similar-to-Windows, user-friendly solutions.

I'm actually a user of CrunchBang (#!) http://crunchbang.org/ myself. In a world where just-about all applications run in the cloud, Chrome has essentially become my operating system. #! is extremely lightweight, and doesn't consume valuable system resources :D

Thanks for that.  Reminds me of one of my favorite sayings.  "Things are not what they use to be, but then again they never were."

A master in the art of living draws no sharp distinction between his work and his play; his labor and his leisure; his mind and his body; his education and his recreation. He hardly knows which is which. He simply pursues his vision of excellence through whatever he is doing, and leaves others to determine whether he is working or playing. To himself, he always appears to be doing both. - François-René de Chateaubriand

TIL there is a Cosmological analog to Darwinian natural selection called fecund universe theory. The theory was first postulated in 1992 by Lee Smolin in his book The Life of the Cosmos. The theory suggests that in the same way natural selection fine-tunes a species to maximize it's production of offspring, so too, do universes fine-tune their constants to maximize the production of black holes. Here is Dawkin's explaining the theory: http://youtu.be/lRTfgQG5Yn8 ff to 1:35

on par with tonight's +COSMOSonTV!
 
This is how our Solar System actually moves through the Galaxy not sideways or flat but liked a meteor dragging rock.

With help from the folks at /r/dogecoin, underdoge Josh Wise will be racing in Talladega this year with these decals. Wow. Such advertising.  #cryptocurrency  Now I have a reason to watch NASCAR.
