The last chance to save Windows XP

Written by Daniel
Monday, 30 June 2008

Microsoft has stubbornly stuck to its decision to stop selling XP after today. It's a wrong decision, which InfoWorld hopes your voice can still change at this very last minute.

Last Friday, we FedEx'd the Save Windows XP petition to Steve Ballmer. I have to say that sliding the memory stick into the envelope was an emotional experience: Over 210,000 users have made their voices heard to the world's largest software corporation. [Front page...]

NO! You will take what we give you an be happy with it..

I didn't find myself caring too much about the death of XP. The few things I do in Windows, Vista seemed to handle just fine. When I see some Vista only games I have to have I'll switch to it again..

Nobody's perfect

I seriously doubt Bill has been happy for a while. His only goals are money and control.

Unless "7" is something special-and with Gates & Companies track record-it won't be, Then the day they get my XP PRO SP3, they'll get it from my cold, dead, hard drive!

Totally agree - I hope 7 is the dogs hind quarters. Happy to accept some forced changes but there is a line.

Err...........does anyone care???

Seriously, I looked at that and I was like "Do people really want this?" I mean, it looks cool and all, and the geek in me really trips on it, but from a practical standpoint I'm having a hard time seeing the utility except in very narrow applications.
