oh my god when i read this so meany jokes poped into my head let me just do 1 or 2

ohhh no what will i do i wont be able to run it now il have to use firefox instead

the move, according to Microsoft, is necessary because "Internet Explorer 9 requires the modern graphics and security underpinnings that have come since 2001

security hahah god thats a good one saying 7 is more secure than xp is like saying i like the atlantic ocean beter than all the otheres becouse its less salty

Enjoy your 10 year old OS that's been patched up over and over again to cover the thousands of security holes thanks to the old technology it's built on....

Im assuming hes not a windows user, judging by the fact that hes essentially saying all windows os's are insecure and even though one is better than the other its still horrible, i would say that hes a linux and/or mac fanboy

I doubt someone with such poor grammar would use Linux.

What a lame move my Microsoft. I will be using XP until my PC dies, as I am not willing to shell out $90 to $170 for a new operating system. If they're going to stop supporting XP, they should bring the price down for 7. Lucky for me I don't bother using IE to surf the web.
Bring the price down? They've been using the same pricing model for ages. Even windows 98 was $109 for an upgrade at the time. Not sure where everyone got the idea that operating systems were dirt cheap and suddenly got expensive. Get the OEM build, save some cash, or get an MSDN student subscription and get all the licenses you can handle.

I'm happy I got in for the pre-order price. Was only like $50 or so...something entirely reasonable. Especially when I could feasibly be using Windows 7 for 5+ years.

Everyone scored on the pre-order stuff it seems like, the student version was chaos but once it cleared up it was only a $30 drop for a new OS.

Just always cracks me up when people complain about Vista / 7 upgrade prices from XP. They paid the same amount when the OS came out as they would for a new operating system. I mean isn't 7 just 95 with a new file system and some gloss? lol the excuses are too rich.
