Yes, MS have been trying to despatch XP for years, but it won't lie down and die, the public aren't ready to do so yet either, Vista came and Vista went and I believe it never got up to 20% market share, now win7 has a higher market share than Vista I believe.

We'll XP users like me will have to:

1. Backup their personal files (on CD or online).

2. Trade in their old XP PC (which they'll be recycled) with a new one that has more RAM and more disk space along with Windows 7. Vista will be gone unless Microsoft starts releasing a third service pack.

Here's an idea: How about "Windows Green", an energy efficient OS that uses less RAM and less disk space? That would be a great idea, right?

MS OSes seem to get progressively larger and larger, so I don't expect to see a lightweight efficient OS from MS ant time soon.

They have been promising for some considerable time to put the windows kernel on a very strict diet and that was thought to be for what is now win7, but that didn't happen.

I guess we will have to see what the Google Chrome OS brings ;D

I love my XP SP3 operating system. I've barely ever had a problem with it, and it gets the job done! I guess I'll just stick with Firefox.

I seem to have a hard time believing these tests... :P

I wish HTML 5 replace flash soon...

Windows XP users must think about either shifting to Linux or Windows 7

Why, what is so special about IE9 that I can't get in Firefox or Chrome or Opera for that matter that would mean having to change OS, for me absolutely nothing. HTML5 is being supported in other upcoming browsers and they aren't applying any such restriction, it will also work with XP.

There is nothing special but we are seeing a familiar footprint on how Microsoft dumped other versions of their OS in the past by discontinuing support for them and the rest of the software makers followed suit...

Just my opinion..thats all... :)

The problem is that yes they may be trying to dump older OSes, but at the same time when that OS still has almost 60% of the OS market share they are restricting the user base of the new product range. For me that is a poor marketing choice and shooting themselves in the foot is a phrase that comes to mind.

This is more crazy when it isn't a technical reason why XP can't use IE9 and HTML5 if the other browsers can still do it they are giving away IE9 market share of 60% of the OS using XP, crazy.

I guess Microsoft is learning from its mistakes.
