Windows Windows Vista has been out and about for a while now, and it has already been updated with a service pack, with a second service pack on its way. Vista's successor, Windows 7, is also getting closer and closer to release, but despite all that, Windows XP is still going strong, and demand for the operating system remains high. Because of that, Microsoft has yet again extended Windows XP's lifetime for OEMs and resellers.

I wish I could have modded you up to 100, but alas.
Never a truer word written in these forums.

Current Computers and operating systems can do everything a person/company needs today without buying new hardware or software. And if there is some niche that needs filling, third parties will create the pieces needed for free or for profit at a fraction of the cost of new everything.

When the world is in financial collapse, only a fool would buy new hardware and software that offers nothing new.
