    I just bought an ASUS netbook. The OS is XP Home. I was just wondering how long it is XP going to be around?

    Considering that Windows XP has been out since the fall of 2001(almost 8 years ago), has been a very popular operating system and still used by well over 50% of computer users, and just had the SP3 upgrade released a few months ago, it'll be in use for a long time.
