Still Rocking Windows XP? Start Planning an Upgrade

Quote:
All things eventually come to an end, and for Windows XP and its legion of holdouts, the end is nigh. It's a dead OS walking and the governors at Microsoft aren't going to pick up the phone at the last moment and give it yet another stay of execution. Microsoft general manager for Windows Commercial marketing, Rich Reynolds, confirmed as much in an interview with InformationWeek.

I'm glad to say that all the computers in use at the college I go to are running Windows 7 Professional, and not XP. Yeah, Windows XP is like a zombie at this point.

Poor old XP...a good OS.

W7 is like a rock. I hope it lives a long time

After the Vista debacle I thought Microsoft would struggle to produce anything better than XP, but Windows 7 has done so, in my view.

Other than a recent hardware problem that has now been rectified I've had no problems with Windows 7 whatsoever.

Goodbye XP - fondly remembered. :)

XP is still my backup OS for in case an application absolutely refuses to run under Windows 7. Just because MS doesn't support it anymore doesn't mean I can't or won't won't use it. I used Windows 98 until late 2005, lol.

I used 98SE until halfway through 2004.

I still have an XP partition for the same reason as you do.
I only have one program (a game) that won't run in W7 (32 or 64 bit) or XP VMs.

Lets face it, XP is the most profitable and successful desktop OS ever released.

I know a few people who still use XP. It's not because they don't want to upgrade. They just don't have the funds to do so currently.
