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.

My framerate in WoW dropped from 37fps to 13fps between XP and 7. "Faster" isn't the wording I'd use. However, for multicore machines I do suspect 7 would do better than XP. 7 has a better refined scheduler.


That's strange, I don't remember seeing any difference in WoW when I moved from XP to 7 on my dual core. Not a 70% drop, anyway.
I had problems with older games, instead.
