I was thinking more about the freedom of choice.. choice of OS version, choice of customisation and settings within said OS.. Apple makes almost all choices for the consumer.

Not quite sure I follow you on what the number of PCs have to do with anything - except cutting the cord on a larger quantity of people.


As for Linux.. tried that one time (albeit a very long time ago) and it didn't like my graphics card. Unable to boot up and unable to uninstall, or reinstall anything over it, I had to low-level format my drive. Sure, its better now, but 90% of the software I am accustomed to using isn't available for it - except by using a windows emulator.


But as for XP, so there's no more support, no more auto updates..  doesn't mean that tomorrow my PC will be unusable. But it is a shame because in my opinion XP was the nicest iteration of Windows made - from reliability, customisability, development, and usability perspectives.

Exactly!    

My Acer is equipped with Win 8 and I've been using XP on my computer though my colleauges use Win 7, which means I skipped Win 7 and got myself involved with Win 8 directly, which took me a long time 2 b used 2 it! And recently Win 8.1 has been recommended when it starts up, but I refused 2 update.    

Smile at whatever happens.
