I like how all these websites always try to emphasize how old something is by exagerating the times. (They did the same thing with Windows 2000)

The current date is 3/29/2010

Windows XP went Retail: 10/25/2001

10 years for Windows XP will be: 11/25/2011

How the hell is 18months "nearly" 10 years?

Arrrrrggggggggghhhh!!!!!



Where's the XP Vista API Wrapper? ;)

I complain about that too and I get an excellent response "Well, it's still old, so it sucks." Also, I see no reason why some of those apps don't run on XP (speaking of which, the current version of those apps don't install on XP x64. Well, without a patch. When patched, it installs and runs just fine. Could be, err probably is Microsoft trying to force people to upgrade Windows 7.) The funny thing is, the new version of Visual Studio still runs on XP. The new version of Office still runs on XP just fine. But, why is that? It's because they're commerical products, and Microsoft can't pass up the chance of money, or users migrating to OpenOffice.

Overall, I think this is probably mostly just a marketing restriction, not a technical restriction.
Windows XP x64 Service Pack 2/AMD Phenom II X3 720 (unlocked to an X4) @ 3.00GHz/5.5GB RAM/HD 3870
We're the exception, not the rule.
