Windows Microsoft will shutter its Windows XP line June 30, as planned, ceasing sales of Windows XP Professional and Windows XP Home to retailers and direct OEMs, Microsoft confirmed to eWEEK April 3. The statement from Redmond executives ends weeks of speculation that Microsoft would extend the life of the operating system as users turn up their nose at Vista, the operating system meant to supplant XP, and OEMs argue lighter versions of desktops and notebooks don't have the juice to run Vista.

stop trolling!

individuals like yours usually have only two things to say, when someone dares to challenge your point of view:

- Use Google
- Stop trolling

Linux is not "new kid on the block" and "RevolutionOS" anymore. And we are not living in 1999 too. More and more people saw Linux, and more and more people disliked it for many reasons. Accept it. And please remember - no one is trying to take your Linux away from you. Use it. Enjoy it. You talk a lot about "freedoms". You ask for your freedom to "spread the word" about Linux, you have it. But do not try to force people who disliked Linux to keep their mouths shut. If you and yours alike will continue doing this, that "freedom" of yours will become more and more like "People's Demokracy" or something similar.
