    Wow, seems like just a couple of years ago, not 5, when people were wondering whether to upgrade to XP (and cussing it out)...

    They might have seen the SERPs hawking LongHorn and decided to launch under a new Brand to get extra traction to go with a new Ad Campaign. Their Ad company was challenged to come up with something Cutsie for Longhorns.

    I was the first medical transcriptionist for the office I was working for to go to Windows XP. Their software is (yes, even now) DOS based, and coping with XP took quite a bit of effort for them.

    I wonder how much headache this one will be for them.

    If you run the "Compatability mode" wizard then you shouldn't have too much of a problem with old software, I can run windows 95 stuff.
