You said, "Keep in mind that Microsoft will be removing support from all previous versions of software and operating systems...its not being offered to you, its being forced upon you."jiml8 said,"Linux...Star Office...Java... There are choices, for most people. I agree. All the more reason for the Linux gearheads to make installation and use much easier. FWIW, I have several friends in the IT department at various companies. Several of them have said their company will never adopt XP because it's too intrusive and, gazing at the crystal ball a little, likely to be very expensive down the road. Their plan is to stay with Win2K Pro for now and immediately begin planning a shift to Linux. When it gets to the point they can no longer use Win2K, they'll switch over.For myself personally, I plan to pretty much do the same thing. I'm currently running Win98 and will upgrade to Win2K Pro shortly. As far as I know, all my MSFT apps will transfer to 2K without problem.I have felt all along that eventually Mr. Gates would shoot himself in the foot. XP may turn out to be a very near miss. The .NET initiative, once everybody realizes how truly evil it is, may turn the miss into a bulls eye.
