Shimbo Darktree Tech: WinXP Support by Microsoft is Ended (16) RE: Tech: WinXP Support by Microsoft is Ended 17 Apr 09


May I return to the report from JohnInKansas regarding the effect of spam email on global warming. What is the significance of 3.1 million cars, and the use of 2 billion gallons of gas? I mean, why those particular numbers? Why not 1.55 million cars using 4 billion gallons of gas? This has the odor of a manufactured statistic, and I'm not suggesting that JohnInKansas is the manufacturer. It wouldn't have been released on April 1st, by any chance?

On a more positive note, it would be interesting to know how much other computer activities contribute to global warming ... or even the actual use of computers ... but I have digressed from the primary topic of this thread.

Why is anyone concerned about lack of support from Microsoft for Windows XP? I have never known them to support anything, unless there is a fee at the end of it. Why they enjoy special privileges that other manufacturer/suppliers don't (i.e. lack of reasonable free support for their products)is beyond me. (Do these comments now mean my computer will suddenly self-destruct?)
