The Bell Tolls for Windows XP

Apr 17, 2007

It looks as if Windows XP will be phased out by the end of the year, despite a continued strong demand for the operating system. Though Microsoft claims that sales of Vista are high, this rush to stop shipping Windows XP seems to say the exact opposite. In a recent Harris poll on over 2200 US adults, only 12% showed any interest in actually upgrading to Vista. This is bad news for Microsoft, and might be one reason why they are rushing XP out the door. My attitude is, if it ain't broke, don't fix it. As such, I intend to stick with XP for several more years. There are far too many problems in the current release of Vista than I'd like to deal with (not to mention all of the overhead for those fancy transparent windows).
