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?
