  1. what does windows vista has that xp doesn’t have for running WLM ?
    you can’t use the same excuse as GPU accelaration for IE9 anymore now.

    1. What it has is profitability for MS. They want to flog newer operating systems, hence cut off XP. Makes people think XP can’t do everything (which is wrong). Though why they’re bothering supporting Vista that everyone hates I don’t know. Win7 I can understand, but Vista!

  2. I don’t want to stop using something that works (XP). My son has Vista on his computer and spacewise it’s a nightmare and drags his computer tremendously. And then the updates. I love my XP. Support us on this for heavens sake, it may be old, but it’s a good product, this is why bog companies rather stick with XP than upgrade to 7.
