The Governor Isn’t Calling

You’ve heard it all before — the bell tolls for Windows XP. The governor isn’t calling to give it a reprieve — Microsoft is officially declaring it end of life for system OEMs on June 30. On April 14, 2009, mainstream support dies. Enterprises with extended support contracts can keep trundling along until April of 2014.

Does that mean everyone should go straight to Vista right now? Hell no. I certainly am not.

    Well, when I got a new computer around Christmas, we switched over to Vista. Since it wasn’t in the first stages of it, it was really quite uneventful, other than the fact that I can hardly get around Word anymore. (Which may have more to do with the newer version of Word than Vista) Anyway, it was sort of a non-event, nothing worth avoiding.
