Amazing how many times XP support has been extended. I still have a couple unused OEM copies. Wonder if M$ really will kill extended, extended, extended support for XP this time around.... Have more 'puters around here than I can count, at least off the top of my head. All but one run *nix but do have an unequivocable business case for that one. Loathe the thought of anything post XP Pro.
There is no such thing as a free lunch. The reason Google phones are so cheap is because Google spies on you and sells your personal information to corporations. Thus they are not actually cheaper, the hidden fee is your soul. Zuckerberg is not providing Facebook to you free of charge out of the goodness of his heart. If Microsoft wants to integrate Bing into it, they will probably do something similar to what Google and Facebook are doing now.
They should do like RedHat instead: open source and charge for updates / support. I'd rather pay for the beer than run unknown code.
Not bad but would be better if they released source code for past older Windows instead like Win 98 or 2k! XP not yet. Then people would be able to make something worthy out of them.
Distribution: Slackware 14 is Main OpSys on Main PC, 2ndary are OpenSuSe 13 and SolydK
I'm afraid I can never trust Billy, Ballmer and the Boys ever again and what's more I would never willingly subject myself to the hair-pulling frustration so common in Windows operating systems of ANY vintage as a main system. I only dual boot rarely and less and less over time just to keep a mainstream hand in play for work.
For me the old cliche of "Hurt me once, Shame on you.... Hurt me twice, shame on me" applies here. I'll go back to windows. Sure... when monkeys fly out my butt.
