Windows XP's Final Days: A Practical Guide

Written by Daniel
Tuesday, 31 March 2009
Users who shunned Vista and are clinging to XP until the release of Windows 7 can get the most out of the aging operating system by following these tips.

Windows XP's days have been numbered for a long time now. A long, long time. Just when it seemed like the end was in sight for Microsoft (NSDQ: MSFT)'s flagship OS, it's had its lifespan granted one extension after another -- [Front page...]
"Though all men live in ignorance before mystery,
they need not live in darkness...
Justice is foundation and Mercy ETERNAL

"All that we do is touched by Ocean
Yet we remain on the shore of what we know."

Well, as everyone here knows what I think of XP PRO & that its performance is very good, I now prefer Windows 7 Ultimate as my everyday OS!
It has all the eyecandy of Vista with the performance & resource usage of XP.
I'm never going back to XP now that I've been using W7U.
Not to mention there's no DX10 on XP like there is with W7U!
I get very good FPS gaming on W7 & the gameplay is very smooth....

BUT, I will always keep my copy of XP PRO SP3 around just in case...

As far as my copy of Vista Ultimate SP1...Pffff!!! Its basically garbage in my book!
I might just frizzbee it... LOL
