The reason for the trail-off could be indicative of people becoming used to Windows XP -- after all, there seem to be endless streams of people keen to continue using it On top of all these, there were those who didn't want Windows XP to succeed for reasons that are best described as absurd. But now all is solved..I will never go back.U have to expect a few problems when you go from old technology to new!

Digitali said that he would be "staying with Win2K." madmanX was similarly "perfectly happy with win2k pro." Others had even more exotic plans. And anyone who claims that 8 is worse than Vista needs to be examined. I have about had it with this damn puter.
Reid, May 13, 2002 #16 jjhlk Guest I agree. It's difficult to tell what will be selected if I click and drag over some text on a web site, especially if images are mixed in with the text. For instance programs associated with Networks, that don't need to be installed on standalone. I have done this for ages and have never had this problem before.
XP has it's bugs, but they are continually working them out and XP will be the most supported OS in the future. Vista searches followed a fairly similar trend -- although there are a few extra spikes -- ultimately trailing off just like XP. I like the operating system, but it's just not enough, it's too demanding, leaving too little to use for other things. Like us!
I get seriously frustrated every-time I roll into work and see that XP Vortex BG staring at me lifelessly and the solid Tetris block toolbar. http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_xp-windows_install/why-windows-xp-is-better-and-windows-8-sucks/c9120df1-cdbe-4006-9398-f0d21b3f171c Win2KFan SubscribeSubscribedUnsubscribe1,7781.7K Loading...

No, create an account now. Default setting on XP SP2 computer automaticly download updates and installs them. Circle us! I still remember 95 and have used everything in between and I think 8.1 is perhaps the best release yet.

These two years expire on April 8, 2014 and XP users will be left in the dark after that date. Sure it still needs some tweaks, but I agree that people need to move on. In Windows, there's a whole application (separate from the update util) for auditing one's update level, and applying special patches. And this is Microsoft's fault?
