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.

OH, I don't know. I'm running it on one of my Atom machines here, 1.66 ghz and only 1 gb of memory, and 7 outperforms the xp that it came with. I'm not sure I'd run it on an old Pentium II, but the latest version of Windows I'd even consider running on such a machine is 2000. Any functionality beyond that, and I'll pick a lightweight Linux.
