Save Windows XP! The clock is ticking
Filed under: Windows Vista

SIGN THE "SAVE XP" PETITION TODAY!


Microsoft will end OEM and shrinkwrapped sales of Windows XP on June 30, 2008, forcing users to shift to Vista. (System builders, meaning those who do white-box PCs, can sell XP through December 31.) Don't let that happen!

Millions of us have grown comfortable with XP and don't see a need to change to Vista. It's like having a comfortable apartment that you've enjoyed coming home to for years, only to get an eviction notice. The thought of moving to a new place — even with the stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, and maple cabinets (or is cherry in this year?) — just doesn't sit right. Maybe it'll be more modern, but it will also cost more and likely not be as good a fit. And you don't have any other reason to move.

That's exactly the conclusion people have come to with Vista. For most of us, there's really no reason to move to it — yet we don't have a choice. When that strong desire to stick with XP became obvious in spring 2007, major computer makers like Dell and Hewlett-Packard quietly reintroduced new XP-based systems (though just to business customers, so as not to offend Microsoft). But come June 30, even that option goes away.

So what to do? Let Microsoft decide where your personal and enterprise software "lives"? Or send a loud and clear message that you don't want to move?

We're going for the loud-and-clear option. Join us, and tell Microsoft that you want to keep XP available indefinitely. Not for another six months or a year, but indefinitely.

And ask your friends and colleagues to join in, too. Just point them to www.savexp.com for a quick link to this page.

SIGN THE "SAVE XP" PETITION TODAY!

Don't think Microsoft will listen? Consider this: Although Microsoft denies that anything is wrong with Vista or that most people don't want it, the company has already postponed XP's demise by six months. That's a start, but it's not good enough.

Microsoft doesn't have to admit failure; it can just say it will keep XP available indefinitely due to customer demand. It can take that opportunity to try again with a better Vista, or just move on to the next version that maybe this time we'll all actually want.

There is a precedent for that, too: In many respects, Vista is like the Windows Millennium Edition that was meant to replace Windows 98 in 2000 but caused more trouble than it was worth. At that time, Windows 2000 was promising but didn't support a lot of hardware, so users were stuck between two bad choices. Without admitting Millennium's failure, Microsoft quietly put Windows 98 back on the market until the fixed version of Windows 2000 (SP1) was available. Microsoft needs to do something like that again today.

Make your voice heard to Microsoft. Sign our petition to save XP today. We will present it to Microsoft.

Submit Your "Save XP" Video
InfoWorld encourages you to contribute your own videos on why XP should be saved. (Although our plea is serious, why not have some fun at the same time, right?) We'll post the best entries on our site and give a Windows XP upgrade license to each of the three top video submissions. Videos must be in Flash, QuickTime, or AVI formats, at 320-by-240-pixel size. E-mail a link to your video to executive editor Galen Gruman.


LEARN MORE ABOUT WHY XP NEEDS A REPRIEVE

For more on why Vista isn't the right replacement for XP, check out InfoWorld's analyses:

The (Post-SP1) Vista Verdict: Wait for Windows 7
Randall Kennedy's assessment is that for the vast majority of enterprise IT shops, Vista is not — and likely never will be — the right choice for their immediate desktop computing needs.

Service Pack vs. Service Pack: XP SP3 Beats Vista SP1
According to tests by Devil Mountain Software comparing the release candidates for the last Windows XP service pack and the first Vista service pack, XP SP3 performs twice as fast as Vista SP1 on the same machine--and slower than the initial release of the Vista OS as well.

Businesses Having Second Thoughts about Vista
Fewer businesses are now planning to move to Windows Vista than seven months ago, according to a survey by patch management vendor PatchLink.

Forrester: Businesses Still Saying No to Vista
An anticipated rush by businesses to adopt Windows Vista hasn't materialized as IT managers stick with familiar systems and wait for the release of Vista Service Pack 1.

Microsoft: Vista Follow-up Likely in 2009
With Vista just out the door, Microsoft is now drawing up plans to deliver its follow-up client operating system by the end of 2009.

HP CEO: Vista Never Had Its Moment in 2007
From CIO.com: Wondering what's happened to momentum for Microsoft's Vista operating system in corporate America? Fact is, enterprise IT has continued to decline the Vista plate like it's an undercooked holiday casserole. Listen to what Hewlett-Packard CEO Mark Hurd said: HP never saw a "Vista moment at any time over the past year."

MS OS 的升级也可以说是换代,但在没有良好的驱动支持和操作习惯的统一,导致MS OS 也会让用户感觉很烂,由此可以理解MS OS 的系统目前的普及性不是因为其系统本身的出色(Win98 很烂,但目前还有人在使用它-理由:Win98 有他特有的兼容性,同理:DOS 在某些领域也是必须的,就是XP也代替不了纯DOS 环境),是其他硬件/软件兼容性的胜利,只要这个方面的优势一消失,MS OS 霸主地位也会完蛋的。

推理一下:Linux 等发行版目前的境遇与Vista 类似,只要解决了兼容性,Linux 很容易取得市场占有率第一的位置。
所以很多用户说Linux系统的不容易操作的特点不应是其推广收到限制的主要理由!

如果XP 停止官方支持,Vista 又没有很好的改善,Linux 又能得到更多的软硬件厂商的支持,Linux 的天下就即将到来!

PS:如果说Linux 是高手玩的系统,但MS OS 下也有很多高手才会用的功能和应用软件,只要你把目光放在了Linux 系统上,什么操作问题都好解决。
