Title: WinXP never dies!
Post by: spic0m on October 03, 2008, 23:31:27 PM
This is going to be the most long live OS of Microsoft! Some Vista machines comes with XP discs also and the deadline is moved from january 31th to july 31th. I think Microsoft is having a hard time to establish Vista in the conscience of its customers.

That does not surprise me at all. From W3.11, the last stable and reliable win os to remember is the win 2k. XP in front of 2k looked like rubbish to my eyes as the first time i used them (on my old laptop) managed up to 3 days of work before they collapse. Within the 2st week of my laptop operation, i turned back to 2K and i kept them up to more than 4 years.

Vista... Vista on the other hand... I prefer not to mention. And i am quite sure that most of the stuff in M1cr0s0ft prefer not to mention it...  ::)
