Apple Ending iTunes Support for XP, Vista, Original Apple TV →

Apple Support:

Starting May 25, Apple will introduce security changes that prevent older Windows PCs from using the iTunes Store. If you have Windows XP or Vista PC, your computer is no longer supported by Microsoft, and you’re not able to use the latest version of iTunes.


Also beginning May 25, security changes will prevent Apple TV (1st generation) from using the iTunes Store. This device is an obsolete Apple product and will not be updated to support these security changes.

I wasn’t aware this stuff was still supported, but then again, my first-generation Apple TV — along with a first-generation Time Capsule — serves as a stand to raise the iMac Pro on my desk to a better height.
