Windows XP was released in August of 2001 as the successor to Windows 2000 and Windows ME. It was the first consumer oriented Operating System (OS) that Microsoft had built. It focused on usability and was a big hit. By January of 2006, Windows XP had over 400 million copies in use and had a 76% market share by 2007. Windows Vista was released in 2007 and was a complete dud. Windows 7 Quickly followed in 2009 with a lot of success. Despite the new releases, it took 10 years for the market share of Windows XP to drop below 50%. Consumers and businesses alike loved XP and have had a death grip on it for over a decade. Even 90% of ATMs still use XP to this day! It also didn’t help that Vista was a mess with compatibility and driver support early in its life cycle. Familiarity and compatibility can be a powerful market force. Each time the Redmond Company has tried to end support for XP; the user backlash was so great that they were forced to extend the life cycle. However, this April is the final date for support with no hope of an extension.

The time of the year has passed when giving seems more important and we tend to think less about those in need. DeBug would like to help and give those in need some much-needed supplies. Bring in your broken or slow computer, mention Evelyn Mount, and DeBug will do a diagnostic on it for free and donate the $40.00 (normally cost) to Evelyn Mount. This is the second year that DeBug has done this, last year we raised over $1000! We hope to see you all at our shop, so that DeBug can donate even more this year!
