Windows Ten years ago today, Microsoft launched what would become the world's most popular desktop operating system - for better or worse. Its interface colours were... Interesting (trying hard to avoid bias here, folks, bear with me now). Its early performance was... Not always entirely up to par. Its security track record was... Well, it sucked hard in that department (I tried). We're ten years down the line, and thanks to Vista, way too many people are still using this relic.

I had XP once

Heh, I had XP for a few years, then I got sick of all the problems and migrated entirely to various Linux distros (to inherit a new set of problems) and OSX for a few years, then about 6 months ago I got a new pc that happened to have Windows 7 installed and to my amazement, it has been a pretty solid OS.
