5 years ago to this day Microsoft released Windows XP. :) So what has changed in the windows world since then? Nothing, XP is still MS's latest OS.

Mad really, I was only 15 years old at the time and was still in secondary school.

Five years, longest gap between two Microsoft OSs I believe.

Vista wouldn't shine if it were spit polished.
