ZDNet.com reports: "I am amused by the current lovefest going on with Windows XP. It’s the greatest operating system ever, in the minds of some, especially compared to the allegedly bloated, slow Windows Vista. In fact, InfoWorld has gone so far as to kick off a “Save XP” petition drive.
Vista bashers really hate it when you point out that the same criticisms being leveled at Vista today were commonly aimed at XP after its launch. Fortunately, I’ve found a near-perfect example of this trend."
For those of you who don't remember the release of Windows XP (about seven years ago), it was criticized as much as Vista is criticized now. I remember one reviewers comment, which criticized it for having a 'PlaySchool' type look to it.
Both Windows XP and Vista were big leaps technologically when compared to previous versions of Windows (i.e. 95, 98, NT, and 2000).
