I didn’t know that Microsoft had plans to retire Windows XP. I’m sorry to hear that bit of news. However, I’m not that much of a geek and am not all that broken up about it. It seems that many people are upset over this news and have petitioned Microsoft to hang on to Windows XP. Alas, they are retiring the OS and now we have Visita (which is on my laptop). No need to fret- Microsoft still has plans provide security patches and updates up till April 2014.
Dell has already made the switch and have put Vista on many of it’s computers already. I know that since having Vista that there are little annoyances but not very many and I couldn’t tell you the differences in performance even if I tried hard enough.
