During the group meeting, someone had asked about the life cycle of Windows XP. To give you the background, there is an ongoing effort to upgrade obsolete NT-based workstations to XP, but apparently there is concern on upgrading to something that will become obsolete soon. Will XP become obsolete soon?

Or, to ask differently, what about Vista or Windows 7 for industry? My guess for now is there will be plenty of shutdowns with those.

Vista… it’s all very confusing. Cosmetic, higher hardware specs requirement, and security level that annoys you.

And the PCWorld claims that Windows 7 is not any faster. Read it here.
