Windows While I can personally attest for the gains Microsoft made when it comes to Windows Vista's performance between its release-to-manufacture November 2006 and now, there is no denying the fact that Vista simply isn't made for running on lower-specced computers. In addition, while Vista brings interesting new features and massive overhauls of many subsystems, a lot of people simply don't like it. Sadly for them, Windows XP is going out-of-sale 30 June. However, there are plenty of loopholes - PC World listed them.

i think it was more like:
"we do what the MPAA wants even though we should ideally have control over how our own products work."

you could always just activate now and make a ghost image for it. whether they shut it off or not you've always got an activated image to use.

activation cracks work effortlessly on both and if you get a corp image (for xp) there isn't activation at all.

if you don't look out though in a few years you'll end up working on an xp "haiku". ;)

Are you perhaps referring to ReactOS ( http://www.reactos.org )? It's been slow going, just like Haiku, but perhaps in a couple of years it will become much more relevant and thus a real option for those who just can't give up XP.
