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.

Ok, I guess I should have pre-empted this whole Win2k rebuttal in my first post. Win 2k didn't come pre-installed on the computers at best buy. Win Me did. Win Xp did. Win 2k was for businesses where it replaced the capable win nt 4.0. XP was when they merged the business oriented NT workstation and the home oriented win 9x product lines. So Xp is great in my mind for finally achieving that. I actually paid for my parents to upgrade to Xp, as it resulted in less calls to me. And it was worth every dime.
