Microsoft has ended support for the long time king of Windows operating systems, Windows XP SP2. It’s a simple thing, says Microsoft, just upgrade to Windows 7.
Today marks the end of security updates for Windows XP SP2 as Microsoft pushes users to Windows 7. Funny but there’s not so much as a mention of that plague known as Windows Vista.

So, have you heard anything about Google’s Chrome Operating System being released next week?
It’s open source. It’s free. It’s going to have limited drivers available. It has fewer partners than expected. It’s supposed to be quick and lean, designed for today’s computing. First commercial availability will be on netbooks
I hope it’s as innovative and exciting as Google want’s it to be but, somewhere in the back of my mind I worry about The Cost of Free.
Grab some speculation here.

Google announced their intent to build a new operating system with design based on the shape of computing today. Noting that today’s browsers run on operating systems that began before there even was a web, Google says it is set to “rethink what operating systems should be.”

Was it really fewer than five years ago that Firefox 1.0 debuted? Its arrival ended the dismal period in which only one browserâ€“Microsoftâ€™s mediocre Internet Explorerâ€“seemed to be viable. With Firefox, Mozilla proved that millions of people were itching to adopt a better browser. And today, we find ourselves with multiple better browsers: Not just Firefox, but also Googleâ€™s minimalist Chrome, Appleâ€™s flashy Safari, the ever-inventive Opera, the highly social Flock, and even the no-longer-calcifying Internet Explorer 8.
All of which means that Firefox 3.5â€“which Mozilla plans to formally release todayâ€“is no longer a shoo-in for the distinction of being the favorite browser of browser fans.

Windows 7 RC 1 is available for download today. CLICK HERE to download Windows 7 RC1.
Want to become a member of TechNet ? You will find information and a link for registering. The release candidate is available in 32 bit, 64 bit and multiple languages.
This is the Ultimate version and is due to “expire on June 1, 2010, and the bi-hourly shutdowns will begin on March 1, 2010“. I’m still unsure how the bi-hourly shutdown works, but whether twice hourly or once every two hours, I’m sure it will be irritating enough to push those of us using the OS to buy or drop back. As much as I’ve enjoyed the Windows 7 betas, I’m sure I’ll be buying and moving up.

Have you ever wondered why your machine seems like it’s operating in mud or is just ignoring you? Well that’s probably because it’s operating just fine for someone else. Yep, we’re talking Botnets. Botnets are using your CPU, draining your memory, just waiting to be told what to do by someone making money from your investment. You don’t mind do you?
