Terrence O’Brien for Engadget on the retirement of Windows XP, or lack thereof:
It’s hard to believe that it was ten years ago today that Windows XP first hit retail shelves. It’s even more astonishing when you realize that it was still the most popular operating system in the world until the beginning of this month.
Windows XP is like when your Grandpa still has a legit driver’s license but you and all your family know damn well he has no business on the road. So you end up hiding his keys for him and offer to take him where ever he needs to go.
“I don’t want you to drive my ass, I just want my damn keys!”
It’s time someone took XP’s keys away from him.
