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.

Win2k was swiss cheese when it came to security. It was a complete disgrace that they shipped it without a firewall. Same goes for XP. Early XP and Win2k users were basically security beta testers. That isn't debatable, you can go back and look at all the exploits those systems had. Win2k servers were a joke compared to Linux then.

It wasn't until XP SP2 that they got serious when it comes to security.
