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.

7 is faster for me

I only run Windows in VMs. A similar software loaded 7 is much more responsive, starts faster and in general feels better than XP in a VM on the exact same hardware. I can't argue with that. I bet the experience would be similar on real hardware. Don't get me wrong, I despise Windows and it took some convincing to instal it in a VM session I tell you but glad I did. No more XP VMs here. RIP.
