XP has been going great over the past years
Go to the your universities and they sell them for $15... I bought three!
RIP XP. You served us well. /salutes.
May Microsoft be in your hand :)
They still have a LONG way to go before Vista is reliable enough for me to purchase it
Vista is junk
Technically Windows 7 is supposed to be out in January of 2010. But I'm with you. I'm sticking with XP Pro for the foreseeable future. The horror that is Vista will never touch these HDD platters.
true dat man
I'm going to stick with XP for my gaming
yea same as me man, XP has been the best :)
Might be it's final hours, but hell, it'll stay in a lot of peoples machines for a long while, including mine :P
Linux taking over lol. Hell thats funny.
Thats why i made the switch to a Mac and it was the best choice i couldve made. Vista is horrible. MacMini is the way to go, $599 and is amazing what you can do on it. You can do things on a Mac you could never do on a pc. I was all about pcs too, damn did this thing change my whole perspective.
After reading this I went and bought one of the last few copies my school has of it! MS official XP disk with SP2 for $10 ftw! It doesn't require activation either ;D
Vista is garbage. I'll stick with XP thank you. I have the Media Edition.
i have vista, and boy have i had loads of problems with it. i thought it was great at first but now i get problem after problem with it
My uncle has it. Most of the programs he had with XP won't work with it. It's an awful piece of software.
Sticking to XP until Windows 7 is out.
I dual boot XP PRO and Linux Ubuntu, i'll stay this way until Microsoft 7, if its any good /sigh
the only optional M$ had given us (the users) would be, a pirated version of XP that is the only optional, since Window Me II (aka Vista) blows i have both XP & Me 2 on my PC, XP runs at lease 15% ~ 20% faster, and i can get all the vista looks on XP and it still run faster!? holy sh!t
The sad thing is, that Vista sales will explode, while in reality, a lot of buyers will use the included downgrade to XP, especially in the business world. So take these Vista sale figures you'll see in a few months with a grain of salt.
