Is Windows XP Here To Stay?

Despite efforts by Microsoft to push its Vista operating system and get users to stop using Windows XP, the previous version isn’t going away. Why? With the performance and compatibility issues of Vista, plus the stability of XP – not to mention the fact there is little need to spend the money to upgrade – XP remains popular. But don’t just take my word for it.

As a self-professed Internet Generalist, I keep abreast on all elements as much as I can, from hardware to software. One source that keeps me in the know on all issues regarding Microsoft operating systems and software is WServerNews. They provide both expert opinion and detailed information, with a touch of humor.

In their latest edition, interestingly #666, they talk of the upcoming release of Windows XP service pack 3, or SP3, as well as link to a detailed comparison of XP and Vista.

So will XP go away? Not for a while, and not for a while on the computer where this was written!
