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.

4/Windows Explorer
5/Distracting look with overdone effects
6/UAC
7/The boot times and update issues have been worsened.

Win7 is Vista's successor, and Microsoft's teams obviously has done their best to make Vista more usable on a daily basis (at the cost of even more overdone theming). But it remains Vista's horrible UI, globally...
