Some of us are glad! I use XP for work, but moved away from Windows almost a

I have never had Windows as my main OS on my home computer. I've only got it on my ThinkPad, which I also installed SUSE on. At home, I went from DOS to OS/2, over 15 years ago and then to Linux, about 5 years ago. Whenever I have to use Windows, I feel restricted because it's very limiting compared to Linux or OS/2.
