[Hexus] "Windows XP - the OS that refuses to pass quietly into the night" - Page 9

post #81 of 87
At some point your going to have to force people to make the switch by killing off the old one. If that never happens then people are never going to make that switch.

I remember back when Windows 98 was taking out of support. Quite a few people were not happy with the jump to XP. XP was even more successful than 98 so even fewer people are going to want to make that jump.

I'm not trying to push either side. I'm just pointing out that people are not going to change from what is working for them unless they have to. In a fair world no one should have to change.

My gf's computer with less than half a gig of ram on it and PIII processor should be able to run 98 and shouldn't have been forced to make the jump to XP. It did the things she wanted to do. She has now had both XP and vista on different computers. She doesn't care which one she's using as long as she can surf and check her e-mail.

Like every 4th car here is a BMW. Because, if you're Russian, you must have a BMW.

I have both OS's on my computer. Personally I think that XP is a lot better, but XP has been out for a lot longer than Vista. Vista is still new to the PC world and it takes usually a year or more just for people to work out the bugs.

Hell, Vista just released it's first Service Pack the other week. XP's on it's 3rd!

My comment honestly was directed to "the populous in general" and not just RickJS. He just made the statement to which it applied.

Way to go! Sarcasm and overdramatizing the situation FTW!!!
