Microsoft fanboys fight for XP

Written by Nick Farell

Vista not for us


Microsoft
fanboys are gearing up for a fight as the outfit threatens to pull the plug on Windows XP.

According to the Sydney Morning Herald, Fanboys have papered the Internet with blog posts, cartoons and petitions. They say that XP was better than Vista, which has  hefty hardware requirements, is slower than an asthmatic turtle on its way up a hill towards a turtle soup convention.  It is to software compatibility what Robert Mugabe is to economic strategy.

Since January the Save XP Web petition, has gathered more than 100,000 signatures and thousands of comments, mostly from die-hard XP users who want Microsoft to keep selling it until the next version of Windows is released, currently targeted for 2010. Redmond has extended the XP deadline once, but it shows no signs it will do so again and is refusing to talk to the Save XP Website organizers.
