Listen to the Trolls

The tech sites are all abuzz about something called “Windows XP Reloaded”. Wild rumors have Microsoft releasing a Windows XP update later this year, ahead of successor Longhorn. Seems like some folks forget that Microsoft already had two Windows XP upgrades on tap for 2004: “Lone Star”, a new version for tablets/notebooks, and “Symphony”, for Media Center PCs.

Reloaded, lamely lifted from Martix Part Deux, is more an evangelism effort, as Microsoft attempts to convince the majority of people running older Windows versions they really belong with the minority running XP. We’ll see how that goes. But if Three Dead Trolls are right, “Every OS Sucks“.
