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.

RE[2]: XP64 == XP

Member since:

xp 64 just uses a different kernel, but it doesn't mean much though, the overall experience and feeling is still the same, and like Thom I'm happy that xp will finaly die.

Didn't really mention it in the main comment, but this was more about the differences in updates, features, what's running after a boot, etc. XP64 is just an XP GUI on top of the 2003 server, so the services running after boot are different.
