Windows Computer makers have been told they'll no longer be able to get Windows XP OEM by the end of this year, despite strong ongoing demand for the OS. Analysts and computer makers are wondering if the move is premature given Vista's ongoing performance and compatibility issues. Dell recently said it would reintroduce XP on a range of machines due to customer demand but Microsoft will only allow this until the end of the year.

Win2K is better

Win2K is better than WinXP and Vista.
My USB thumb drives have no problem under Win2K.

Win XP cannot recognise my USB drives.

Their product is getting worst.

I also think Windows 2000 was the best OS that Microsoft ever produced.

XP was too much like a kids toy for me, and Vista was good in a few of the betas, but the final version is crap.

25Gb to install and 728Mb Ram to sit on the desktop with nothing running ?

Nah,

Windows 2k was sweet

"5Gb to install and 728Mb Ram to sit on the desktop with nothing running ?"

quite the BS...

right now I'm sitting at 481 MB ram used with a development application running and firefox (ff=66+MB ram...) with aero on. Seen it as low as 350MB used with nothing running (aero off)

I'm using 7.5 GB of hard drive WITH open office, photoshop, and at least 10 other apps installed right now.

"XP was too much like a kids toy for me," that's a nice opinion, and I hated the default theme - but that has nothing to do with the functionality.
