Okay. So first I would like to point you to a great PC Mag article about Win XP. It’s called Windows XP: The Unauthorized Biography. It’s a good article talking about Windows XP.
Another thing I would like to say. All you people that think that you wont be able to get Windows XP after June 30th, you will still be able to get it, it just wont ship with your PC. I quote from a PC World article,
“…you’ll be able to buy XP on certain mainstream PCs at least until January 31, 2009, and possibly beyond…”
Microsoft will still be making updates for it until 2014 though. Like I said before, your new PC wont ship with XP, but, and I quote from Tristan’s unproductive blog,
“…Windows XP Professional thought will be given with the purchase of Vista Business or Vista Ultimate as part of the “Downgrade Rights”. XP will continue to be updated until April 2014. Lets hope that Microsoft will see to it that Vista gets as stable as XP …”
Check out This article from PC World talking about that. Make sure you watch the Video on the bottom of the page also. Although did you really think, for one minute, a company like Microsoft, will get rid of it’s most successful Operating System before it has a good Operating System to replace it? Nope. And besides, even if they did decided to get rid of XP, we’ve all got backup disks at home.
