A Somber Celebration for Windows XP's 10th Birthday

Microsoft celebrates the 10th anniversary of its incredibly popular operating system by telling people to upgrade to Windows 7.

TGDaily: This week is the 10th anniversary of the release of Microsoft's Windows XP operating system, but the company clearly wishes fewer people were still using the aging OS. "Think about phones – would you even carry a flip phone now? Think about music – would you still claim that Destiny’s Child is your top favorite band (if you or your wayward self ever did)? Think about hair – are you still rocking the same cut? Why then are you still on Windows XP when Windows 7 is so much better?" reads a post on the Windows Team Blog.

Observers say that the lackluster capabilities of Windows XP's successor, Windows Vista, is largely to blame for the longevity of XP.
