20 years of Windows XP

Windows[German]Exactly 20 years ago, on October 25, 2001, Microsoft launched a new operating system called Windows XP (XP stands for eXPerience). What was heavily criticized at the beginning because of its colorful (Luna) user interface and "immense resource consumption" later turned out to be a terrific success for Microsoft. Windows XP was so successful that it simply can't be killed off – it has become a veritable zombie. Even today, millions of computers are still working with this operating system, although its support was discontinued on April 8, 2014. So happy anniversary to Windows XP.
