XP lives! Sort of.


Congratulations Linux. Yesterday was the day you made Microsoft blink. Microsoft has changed its mind and has decided to keep XP Home around after all.

I’m sure that Microsoft’s change in heart was in part due to efforts like InfoWorld’s Save XP efforts, which put names to over 200,000 users who don’t want to move to Vista. I’m even surer though that what really changed Microsoft’s mind is that Linux, and not Windows, was taking over the red-hot UMPC (Ultra Mobile PC) market.
