If you already are at the dropping business, then why not do it right
and drop XP, too. Now that even would have a positive side effect
by giving Vista a much needed boost, enhancing overall computer
sales significantly - or finally push the rest of the world over to
Linux. And those who would not or could not also benefit from
having one more software less to bother about updates.

And from sarcasm to facts: here we run W2K on all but one
machine which would not run W2K properly the moment it gets
more than 1GB of RAM. But boy, how much extra trouble to
civilize XP than W2K!
