> XP is a perfectly stable OS, and I for one find it completely satisfactory. At my workplace we have literally thousands of pcs running XP, and we are not going to spend untold millions on new pcs and OS's, and not even going to buy extended XP support. And we are just one company among uncounted thousands (or millions). XP will be around for a very long time yet - no matter what Microsoft would wish.
Tomorrow we'll see.
Ubuntu gets a prelim fail. I assumed it would just say, like Win7 when I installed it, 'which partition?....overwrite?.....done'. Instead it gave me options and I had to pick a boot something and......ahm I didn't past that after fucking about with it. Lame.
It is cool that it automatically boots from USB and you can try it out, then install. Not so hot on the 'Left to right' default set-up, though I did give it a whirl. I couldn't find the screen saver to save my life, either. I see the resemblence in tablet Android. Bittersweet.....
