Which is the Youngest Operating System?
Till date Windows XP is the most pampered operating system from Microsoft. Although, it has crossed a decade and more, still it holds the same charisma as it did at the time of birth in 2001. Windows Vista could not shake the confidence of XP users, while Windows 7 took almost two years to surpass it. The fact is enough to explain the masses’ love for the big one. Overtaken by the love, Microsoft is bound to release successive service packs thereby extending the features and support for new hardware and software technologies and corresponding products. With the latest Service Pack 3, it has brewed up the power of Network Access Protection (NAP) in order to help organizations that use Windows XP to take advantage of new features in the Windows Server 2008 operating system. It also gives space to earlier released Windows XP updates, including security updates, out-of-band releases, and hotfixes. In total it is rumored to hold 1,073 fixes along with various performance improvements. The concern of Windows XP popularity knocked the Microsoft’s cognizance even before the release of Windows 7, and that’s why it had provided the downgrade right to customers with new built PC or laptop. System shipped with Windows 7 Professional or Windows 7 Ultimate editions preinstalled were allowed to downgrade to either Windows XP Professional or similar Windows Vista versions for 18 months, or until the availability of SP1, whichever came sooner. Even more, programs that lost the compatibility in Windows 7 were given a safe abode under Windows XP Compatibility Mode.
