wow. how can universities really teach IT when their IT is so antiquated? win 98/2000? wow.

the only systems that can continue are those who have systems that are OEM. that's about it, it would appear.


The IT dept had up to date machines and hardware. These are lab computers with very specific pieces of software we are talking about here.

What i don't tell them is ZOMG you are using Windows XP i'm not even going to service your computer anymore!!!!! (as one Neowin member confessed he says to his customers) you must IMMEDIATELY UPDATE!!! I tell them you'll want to be updated by April 14th.

 

Do you expect all of them to update? Or just continue on using XP?
