“Rocking Our Sales” by Bruce ServicePack and the Vista Street Band: It’ll make you cringe. And want to downgrade to XP. (Oh, wait already did?)
My next computer will be a Mac. If I need games, I’ll get Parallels to boot up XP on those rare occasions.
Currently, I’ll running XP on my desktop and Ubuntu on my laptop. I love Ubuntu.
