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.

Full ack...

Man, I have to use it for development at my job at a bank and you can't really install anything on these machines. So you pretty much have to live with "vanilla" XP, which is horrible. The taskbar I hate the most. You can't even rearrange the windows on it. WTF??? Or no desktop search integrated. Those are serious productivity killers!

Can't wait for 2014 when XP will have to disappear from business IT desktops as well because MS stops delivering security updates. XP isn't even a dinosaur, it's an amoeba ;-)
