We all hated XP when it first came out.

It was different and treated with contempt.

Then we got used to it.

Eventually we were fond of it.

Then Vista came out and we realised how much we adored XP.

Vista was hated, it came and went like an unloved season, and there were no tears for Vista when 7 was released.

And still XP ploughed on.

It was known, it was stable, it was trusted.

7 was a roaring success, (I love 7), and XP, our old friend, started into the terminal decline and bloated dotage, but still we looked at it with affection.

It is like an old uncle. You knew that many years ago he was a hard drinking hell-raiser who went to war and killed people, but who now sits in the corner at family parties and is only talked to out of a sense of guilt and obligation, and who may at anytime wet himself or keel over and die.

So we are doing the decent thing and putting XP down.

However, there are ghosts, (95% of ATM's are XP Based) and these are going to haunt us all for years to come, so farewell XP, be seeing you soon!


I think 7 will be missed when it is euthenized, but when 8 is killed off there will be dancing in the streets!
