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 don't get the hate, to be honest. XP is still the OS that I spend the greatest amount of time in. It's never blue-screened on me, I've never had an activation problem, I've never suffered any security problems, and it still does everything I need it to do.

I'll be using it until Microsoft kills all support for it.

That's like saying, "it's ok for me to leave my front door open because I've been doing it all this time and I haven't been robbed".

Do yourself a favour and upgrade to Windows 7.
