I guess as a business they have to move on. But we don't. If the PC is still working then, I will probably look towards an open source distro (e.g. linux) or keep it as is. I think the PC might konk-out before the XP. LoL. Then again, if I am replacing, I will think more carefully. Hopefully by then Android on PC is available and stable. Here's looking to you, Android Baby.

They said they were withdrawing support for Windows 98 for years...even past the time they said, they were still supporting it and Windows 98 still had many, many users. Ire are still heaps and heaps of people using XP. For interest sake, I have Windows 7 and I love it.

Yeah I agree windowsxp was a good operating system back in the day but that day was years ago I like windows 7 now because its so much faster and more feture filled but I gues thats what to expect as technology advances stuff gets old faster and faster soon the days of windows 7 will be Numbered. But I think windows 7 will last alot longer than vista, still I can't wait for windows 8.
