Windows Windows XP is turning five years old, but will anybody want to celebrate the occasion? Microsoft's long-anticipated replacement for 'Win 9x' - the series of releases that began with Windows 95 and ended with Windows Millennium Edition - was never supposed to stick around this long. But half a decade after it began shipping on new computers (followed a month later by its retail debut), XP lingers.

Not that inconvenient? Try activating over the phone.

It takes about 10 minutes, and involves some incredibly long numbers being read out over the phone in a monotonous robotic voice and then typed into a dialogue.

I consider it extremely inconvenient.
