      Actually, it was a pretty amusing comparison.

        NTN had a longer gestation period than XPs successor.

        That takes some doing.

              Windows XP, Operating System for Windows Computers. Microsoft just announced they won't be providing Security Updates to XP any longer. They want us all to by new computers with Windows 8.0 NFW

              I may have to get a newer desktop computer though, with Windows 7 64 bit. All the Video Editing programs I use (SONY Vegas Pro) are moving to 64 bit OS. Being able to use 12 or 16 GB of memory for video rendering would be nice.

                I hindsight should have been XP and 75mm Nordic Norm ...

                But I was really thinking of the "upgrade" cost ... and XP => 8.1 "free upgrade" and NN => NTN both have similar "costs".

                    The XP thing is annoying, and may lead to Botnets From Hell, which all sorts of companies other than Microsoft will have to deal with. And MS made some truly stupid interface design decisions with the schizophrenic Win 8 desktop/startscreen (though really, it's fine, and the truly stupid stuff can be dealt with and/or ignored, if the alternative is to get used to a whole different platform).

                    On the other hand, anyone running XP is overdue for a new box regardless. Think about it: 2x to 4x the memory, 2x to 4x the disk space, 2x to 4x the speed, support for all sorts of devices that didn't exist when XP came out, for maybe 2/3 the cost of the old XP box, which is probably closer to a hard disk failure than you think. And your 7- to 10-year-old Windows apps will still run on the new machine, even though you should upgrade that stuff as well (the new video editing software version will actually support iPhone's video format, think of that).

                        Pretty good. Aqua Toque, you get my vote for the person whose Internet personality probably most likely matches his real one.

                            NTN and I still have XP on 2 machines, but win8 on the new laptop.

                              My wife said,
                              "Who's that guy with an egg on his head?"
                              I said, that's Aqua Toque, a famous Canadian skier, with an egg on his head.
