Adieu “Windows XP”

I still remember the first glance of “Windows XP” which gave a completely new dimensions towards how easy it was to use a Windows Operating System. Dusting old memories, it was sometime in 2012 when my father agreed to buy me a personal computer, it was P4 system with 2 GB RAM and a DVD drive with an addition of a TV Tuner card. This was a pre-configured system from a branded manufacturer “HCL” and this model was called as “Busy Bee” and came with the bundled operating system “Windows XP Home Edition”.

Back those days Windows 98 SE was still widely used and considered to be the best. But Windows XP ran like a champ and gave such a positive vibe and impressions to all of my friends and family. It’s been almost 11 years and still runs the same old Windows XP. What more can I say about such a thing which never gave a thought of an OS upgrade.

Yup! Bitter truth is Microsoft wants its users (like me) to upgrade its OS and get moving with the newest ones. Windows XP was a benchmark as to how an OS should be. The ones that impressed me next is Windows 7. Windows 8, yeah I still have to get adjusted with the usage but definitely didn’t impress me yet!

As of April 8, 2014, support and updates for Windows XP are no longer available. Check out this link: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-IN/windows/end-support-help

I would definitely miss you!
