Windows XP is 15 years old today
#1
Windows XP is 15 years old on August 24, 2016, when it was first released to manufacturers for sale.

The OS holds very many love and memories of me on my first computer, an IBM ThinkPad R50e which likely still works to this day. XP was reliable, and XP was good. If it didn't work you could always still do something with it (usually).

So many great times. Flash games, MSN/Windows Messenger, WordPad, MS Office 2003, Outlook Express, IE6, the start of forums, ACMLM'S BOARD I2, XEOGAMING, etc. etc. and I was born just a month later after its release as well.

An amazing OS it was simple and easy to use while being fully featured.

It was excluded from mainstream support in April 8, 2014, but has actually still got support if you do a registry hack.

I'm listening to https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2gKSRg47E4A (DKC, Life in the Mines) and it reminds me of XP nostalgia, oddly.

(Yeah, I also posted this on a few other sites too)

Naahh, Windows 7 is king. Most rock-solid stable OS I've ever used.

I say LINUX beats you all! Mwahahaha. But on a serious note I just prefer Linux because I'm tired of Windows.

@Dexxa: Same boat as here then Smile

@Eric: Really? I think Vista SP2, XP and 7 SP1 are pretty much equal. 2000 was apparently rock solid though.

@Kaiser: Linux is cool tbh Smile But XP is awesome imo.

I was trying another operating system that looks like windows, Loaded it into a virtualbox container and worked a treat, was able to install windows applications on it, tried installing it on my pc as it worked on virtualbox on the same pc, wouldnt install at all,

Some people might find some good use for it, Reminds me of the good ole windows days with the default design https://www.reactos.org/

I'm going to check that out Dexxa and maybe do a video on it some time if I get a camera (my computer doesn't have a microphone). Seems pretty cool to me.
