News Report: RIP Windows XP and Windows XP-tan!

RIP Windows XP and Windows XP-tan!
On April 8th 2014, you can say good-bye to one of the most favorable OS in all of history, Windows XP. Initially released 12-years ago, Windows XP has been used by virtually everyone that has ever used a computer as it was the solution that everyone was waiting for after the horrible Windows ME disaster. In all, Windows XP Home, Windows XP Media Center Edition, Windows XP Tablet Edition, and XP Professional (32bit and/or 64bit) has sold over 600,000,000 licenses in all, not including the tens of millions (at least) pirated in China and the rest of the world. Today, Windows XP is still used by an estimated a near 30-percent of the users; however these numbers have been dwindling down (or up) according to various web analytic reports (there's no telling right now).Windows XP was especially popular in Japan as many, many, MANY banners would float around various electric districts such as Akihabara where Windows XP-tan would promote her product. In Japan, operating systems all have their own anime mascot character. Not convinced? Anime sells, and it sells well especially to those whom are otaku (geeks) of some sort. If you had a choice between pirating a copy of Windows or owning a legitimate copy with an anime character on the box, you would probably buy the OS just for the box if you’re an otaku (heck, why not?).It has been 12-years now and it’s time to retire Windows XP for something a lot more superior. No, not Vista… Wait, no—Not Windows 8! Yeah, Windows 7, yep! That’s the one! All that is left now is mourn the loss of our beloved as Windows XP-tan will soon be getting her life support removed. You served us well these past 12-years, you will greatly be missed!
