I'm more upset about the office 2003 EOL than XP. IMO, every Office release after 2003 has been horrible (probably because the interface isn't intuitive... I mean c'mon... it shouldn't be that hard to get a printout to stop looking like it's double spaced............).

XP has had a great run, and truely was dialed in when they released Vista, but it's time to move on folks.... ;)

I totally agree about the Office 2003. I hate the new interface, but I had to adjust since 2007 is what my work uses. Gross.

XP lost all momentum when Win7 was released. Vista made people like myself stick with XP as we didn't want to use a craptastic OS.

Not that anyone cares but Vista officially lost all support today from Microsoft.


April 10 is the day Vista dies
