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.

The 64-bit version of XP has nothing in common with the 32-bit version of XP beyond the name. You really can't compare the two.


They share the same kernel but it's an updated version of the XP kernel. It isn't a rewrite so to say that XP 64 has nothing in common with XP 32 is not just a stretch but wrong.

Yes, the future of Windows is 7. But there's no way you can categorically say that 7 is better than XP.

Sure you can, by virtue of security.
