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.

People that think 7 is a massive improvement over Vista either have little experience with either or don't spend enough time reading articles that contain objective analysis.

Hey, I can read all the objective benchmarks I like, but it didn't make my Vista sp1 installation perform any faster. Hardware configs differ, drivers differ, there are hundreds of different variables that can affect performance. Vista was dog slow on my hardware, 7 performs very well on the same machine. Next to that, I could give a rat's ass what the benchmarks say Vista *should have done*.
