Windows XP Users in for Hard Times

Microsoft Windows XP

Window XP users will want to upgrade very soon.

Hey everyone, Steven here from The Trend Guys…

I’ll never forget when Windows XP was released. Man, that was a great operating system and the GUI was nothing like you’d ever seen before if you were a Windows user.

Windows XP was so great that it’s 12 years old, but more than 31% of both desktop and laptop users from around the world still currently use Windows XP. Unfortunately, those people have a horrible road ahead of them if they’re going to stick with Windows XP for much longer.

Installation of Windows 8

So, I’ve decided to give Windows 8 a fair shot. I downloaded it and installed it via VirtualBox, which basically enables me to run an operating system inside of an operating system. I’m literally installing Windows 8 right now as I type this post. I’m extremely impressed with the installation time. The process of installing windows maybe took only 10 minutes — if that.

Stepping Into the Future Isn’t As Exciting as I Thought it Would Be

I plan on installing Windows 8 sometime this weekend and possibly even doing it tonight. I will dedicate my time to Windows 8 for at least a week and see how long it takes me to get adjusted to the new operating system. I will also be taking note of my productivity and seeing if it goes up or if it actually drops while I’m using Windows 8.
