Windows

It wasn't meant to be this way. Windows XP, now no longer supported, wasn't meant to be popular. For all its popularity and sustained usage, people seem to have forgotten something important about it: it sucked.

The Ars forums are a place for geeks to hang out and chat about tech, and especially in the light of the hostility shown towards Windows 8, we thought it might be fun to take a look at how our forum dwellers reacted when first introduced to Microsoft's ancient operating system.

How times change.

My favorite feature was that animated dog in the file search. He always showed up happy and immediately got bored and displeased when tasked to find something.

Farewell you nameless unhappy search dog. You never got the same attention as Clippy, but you were just as useless.
