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.

"Win7 isn't THAT much more advanced than XP to account for all that extra space, so WTF did they put in there? "

AFAIR: WinSxS, which is the shared library folder. [I'm not a Win user though. so it comes from my own research and Win7 testing]

"Esentially, once I had all of this useless crap turned off, I was basically back to something that looked and felt like XP. Well, the start menu is better, but that's hardly worth the price I paid"

I'm still amazed you oaid it. You know, there was Win7 RC for testing purposes ... ;)
