Everyone should avoid Windows Codename Compromise because of this:


Want a Windows 8 Start Button? Open source to the rescue!

Ballmer says 500 MILLION 'users' to 'have' Windows 8 in 2013

Thumb Down

MS still continues to secretly remove features from Windows

As long these issues exist: http://xpwasmyidea.blogspot.com/2011/09/features-removed-in-windows-8.html and Microsoft arrogantly ignores them and continues to move ahead with Windows 8, no plans to upgrade to Windows 8.

Windows XP support ends two years from now


What ?? You mean downgrade to Windows 7? Windows 7 is a major downgrade in several areas, especially, USABILITY, and accumulates Vista's shortcomings too: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_features_removed_in_Windows_Vista


Windows 8 is no better:


XP is a completely functional OS and any one with common sense can secure it properly. Later OSes are broken in one way or the other. Wait till SP2 for Windows 7 arrives to bloat your C:\Windows\WinSxS folder. Vista was one attempt to take over your computer, Windows 7 is decent but doesn't fix Vista's wrongdoings and now Windows 8 is take 2 to take over your computer. The computer controls you, you don't control it.
