Save Windows XP. Er…ah…huh? OK, so in all your wildest dreaming, would you ever imagine that Microsoft would have produced an operating system that was SO bad, that someone somewhere set up a petition to keep using the older version? Could you? This must rank as the most humiliating thing ever to happen to a software company. Ever. And worse, 57,000 people have already signed up. Sheesh!
I’ve got to say, I actually enjoy using XP right now (it’s really really stable as long as you throw lots of RAM at it, which is a nice surprise), and will no way switch over to a DRM ridden, complicated, locked down, bloated catfish of an operating system just because they want me to. So from that point of view, sign me up!
Microsoft plans to end most sales of Windows XP on June 30, despite a deep reluctance by many business and individuals about moving to Vista. InfoWorld believes such an expensive, time-consuming shift with problematic benefits should not be forced on Windows users, so we have decided to rally XP users to demand that XP be kept available.
