Windows Microsoft will shutter its Windows XP line June 30, as planned, ceasing sales of Windows XP Professional and Windows XP Home to retailers and direct OEMs, Microsoft confirmed to eWEEK April 3. The statement from Redmond executives ends weeks of speculation that Microsoft would extend the life of the operating system as users turn up their nose at Vista, the operating system meant to supplant XP, and OEMs argue lighter versions of desktops and notebooks don't have the juice to run Vista.

The "funny" thing is IE7 does the same thing. You have no choice but to go through their "onetime" setup to even set the homepage where you want it.


Or you can click the drop-down arrow next to the home button and choose "Add or Change Home Page".

The interface of IE7 is very confusing.

So says I, a more technically-inclined person and my colleagues, who are not technical at all.
