I was just wondering if anyone out there has heard that there is going to be no more windows xp… I was in the source on saturday and that is what the girl there was saying… they are selling all there computers . up grading to another type… can we upgrade our computers to this new one … does anyone no. if so can you give me the sight to go to … thank you
xp is getting hard to find, but microsoft will keep updating it for a few more years, drivers and security issues will be fixed, and then like win 98 they will not do anything more… So the question is upfrade to Vista … or buy a Mac…
Vista is the new product so if you buy a new computer it is going to come with that instead of XP. As Astro said, Microsoft will be supporting XP for years.
Maybe this will help you. I found this site at Microsoft. It has an upgrade adviser that’ll help you determine if your computer is Vista ready. Good luck.
Vista gives me the good ol’ BSOD on occasion.
Sadly, the best Vista-compatible computer I have is my Macbook. It runs Vista with all the bells and whistles. I did it for about 30 minutes before I got really annoyed with it and rebooted into Mac OS X.
I started to get the BSOD on my daughter’s XP Pro box so I set it up with a dual boot with Ubuntu Linux. At home I boot into Windows once per week to run maintenance scans and also to just annoy myself.

Yes indeed buy a mac, i seen a vista at staples and i asked the salesman his honest opinion
he said it trys too hard to be OSX
i don’t like the mac or vista, im a xp girl…so i guess im screwed in the future
whats the big deal with the vista and mac anyway?!?!?
Some day I’ll give Linux a try. I am fine with Windows myself, but I don’t care for the hype about the technical qualities and the security issues people on the net are throwing around.
