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.

That said, as an advocate, I believe that dealing with reality is more effective than wishful thinking.[1] So I find honest and constructive criticism, coming from inside or outside the Linux community to be both welcome and helpful. But my impression is that you are not really doing that. Not consistently, anyway. So I would have to agree with apoclypse and others that you have, indeed, been doing a bit of gratuitous trolling. It's not a crime. I've been known to do a bit of it myself. Just ask the KDE advocates! ;-) But please try to be honest about it.


I am trying. I also hope that you noticed my criticism and scepticism about Vista, other comments not related to Linux/Free Software at all (AmigaOS ?) and - last but not least - my sarcastic sense of humour, that I am trying to put in my comments from time to time. ("my dear fellow linuxians")
