Been trying to fix a problem at one of our sites today, and remembered why I totally hate XP.
Trying to install windows update: Failed, need to run patch
Run MS Fixit patch to fix windows update: Failed, please Install SP3 via Windows update
*stabs XP a bit then runs back to shiny Win7*
At least it's not just me!. Changed jobs about 4 months ago from a nice Windows 7 network to an XP mess. God I miss 7 :-(
The sooner XP's funeral is held the better!
Shhhh! Simon's still getting to grips with XP!!
It's certainly the time to start planning that funeral, laying the foundations in the minds of the various heads/SLT members etc. Sooner it's gone the better!
Been gone for a good while at our place, its now showing its age. It was good once but now its time to move on.
Still got it in little pockets of resistance.
Thing is, some programs and printers work better with it.
Case in point - Testbase - worked fine on XP with HP2600 printer
Teacher now has Win 7 - gets a "floating point overflow" error and can't print
*IEP writer is the same
The thing I miss most when going back to XP is not being able to search the start menu. So glad we've got it running in school as well now cos moving between 7 at home and XP at work was getting annoying...
Ive yet to move to windows 7 most of the programs we have do not work on windows 7 so thats going to be fun!!
although we will probably only move the class pc's and staff laptops to Win7, going to leave the laptops we have for use in classes as XP so they can use all the programs.
Ive still got more to investigate but we shall see.
Indeed, I hate XP. So many little annoyances that Windows 7 and Server 2k8 R2 fixes. For example, building a universal image. Soooo much easier in Windows 7.

Yay, the world is catching up. I have not been able to stand XP for years now, 7 is better. To a large extent Vista was better. I just wonder how long it will take before the same sentiment is being expressed with regard to Windows 8 or 9.
