t must have occurred to you that dear old Microsoft (aka “The digital vampire”) will suspend the support for XP on April 8th.
Not because XP is a bad OS, no. They do this just because they don’t sell enough tablets and netbooks running that sorry excuse for an OS called Windows 8.
Well, W8 is an abortion of an OS and as such should be relegated to the curiosity cabinets of digital mishaps.
But hey: the average user cannot live without Microsoft (or they would immediately move over to any user-friendly Linux distribution, like Ubuntu or Mint), so what MS does is to push W8 on every new machine sold anywhere, while Windows 7 would do just the same work (better, actually) at the same speed and with a less steep learning curve.
But that is not the point here.
Whether you like W8 or not, if you’re buying a new Laptop you will have to use it.
No discussion possible.
