We've already said quite a few words on this one already, so we are going to leave it at a short announcement today. Today, Monday 30 June 2008, marks the last day of sales for Windows XP, the seven year old operating system a lot of people really don't want to let go. Windows Vista is Microsoft's sole desktop operating system now, whether people like it or not. Windows XP will still be available via backdoors and on netbooks, but it won't be available at retailers anymore (some might still have some stock left, though). Feel free to place your obituary in the comments. To me, Windows XP was like cheese: it got better with age.
