Windows XP is now retired. Now what?
Monday, July 7, 2008 by VistArtXPosed | Discussion: Windows XP
As we all know, June 30th was the last day to purchase a copy of Microsoft Windows XP. But why did they stop selling it so soon? Windows XP was a favorite OS among most PC users. I still believe that the majority of PC users run XP today. (I still run XP, [and Vista]). I have to agree that XP is much faster than Vista, under certain scenarios. And with the right software, XP can become more secure than Vista.
Are we forced into running Vista or will PCs users convert to Mac or Linux? What will be the future of PCs without XP? Will Windows 7 be good enough to qualify as an "XP Replacement"?
Please feel free to share your thoughts. It would be appreciated.
