XP is irrelevant, but for another reason
by mario on Fri 12th Oct 2001 17:08 UTC

XP doesn't have the vision-problem that Linux has, but it's irrelevant because 1. it brings very little improvement to Windows 2000 2. companies are in save mode. Believe me, I know! Resistence to upgrade is great. 3. Microsoft's newest licensing scheme has alienated many CIOs 4. XP is a resource hog. Upgrading to XP in most cases means upgrading your hardware, and that just enforces point 2. Still, by the end of this year there will be more copies of Windows XP sold than Linux desktops (not servers) are in use now.
