[ubuntu-uk] Dad's Computer - for want of a better subject

By the way, the "official line" with regard to sales of Windows XP and Vista
is that both are now "past their sell by date", as XP officially "end of
retail sales" was June 30th 2008, and Vista October 22nd 2010.

Which makes me wonder why, if this PC shop wanted to "move your dad
forward", they didn't just go for Windows 7 which has been proven to be
SIGNIFICANTLY faster than Vista (and in some cases XP) on lower
specification machines.

But, in reality, XP is far from dead or unavailable....
