Windows Yes, the day is finally drawing closer: the day Windows XP died. October 22, 2010 will be the final and definitive day for the venerable operating system, since OEMs will no longer be able to pre-load it on netbooks after that day. I might not make myself popular around here with this, but thank god, it's about time that pile of junk is taken behind the shed.

Windows supports multiple cores per CPU, but the number is limited in both legal and technical ways.

Legal limit is the one imposed by the EULA and enforced by windows itself.

The other is the technical limit that says that Windows XP might not work as efficiently with Quad - or - more - Core CPUs. The makers might not have foreseen this pace of doubling the cores almost each year ;)
