Windows 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.

Well, I'll sell you a new 32bit Vista Business copy for a lot less than you'd pay retail. I want to get rid of it.

I want to stick with XP until I learn Linux.

How much? Is this even allowed in the EULA?

You make it sound like the EULA is legally enforcable no matter what is in it.
