    Thanks very much Windows XP for the wonderful years with you.
    But time flows on - and I am preparing to move on.
    Will still keep in touch with you at my workplace where you still hold
    sway - till later this year.
    You were the best from the Microsoft family.
    As I begin a relationship with your younger sibling - Seven - I feel blessed
    that most of your sterling qualities live on in her.
    This also means that Usenet will start to go away from me too. Seven groups
    are exclusively on the Web.
    Thanks for having made using a computer such a learning and productive
    experience.
    Regards.

    You and XP should get a room.

    There's a news group for Windows 7. It's alt.windows7.general. It's not
    sponsored by Microsoft.

    So, you're dumping old sexy for something younger?

    I wish I could get rid of her too, but the office won't upgrade our dying
    computers. Maybe I should get a tattoo that says "Single Core for Life".

    Though I switched over to Linux about 18 months ago...

    I did try both Vista and Win7 but will never use them


    for any of the few times I run Windows...it will be XP.

    If Windows was a more secure OS I probably would have stayed with it

    leave a dear jane
    letter before you
    leave.

    and if you didn't
    wear a cd case then
    you should get
    tested.

    perhaps, its too
    late because of
    your insane posting.
