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.

I agree. 7 does not have any additional feature I want and uses double CPU, triple RAM and quadruple hard disk. lol.

If Company of Heroes doesn't work on Wine by the time I change my laptop I'll have rethink my gaming strategy or install 7 knowing that is a waste of energy.

Looks like a recent version of Company of Heroes does work without a hitch in any recent version of Wine. I just suggest getting a machine with nVidia card, I've never had issues with those whereas I always run into one or another issue with ATi ones.

Cheers ;)
