Windows Yes, the day is finally drawing closer: the day Windows XP died. October 22, 2010 will be the final and definitive day for the venerable operating system, since OEMs will no longer be able to pre-load it on netbooks after that day. I might not make myself popular around here with this, but thank god, it's about time that pile of junk is taken behind the shed.

Yeah, it's finally getting to the point where XP drivers are not being made for new hardware. It's almost easier to find Linux drivers than XP drivers.
