A few weeks back I wrote about The impending crisis that is Windows XP and IE 8 and boy did I hear some opinions!
"Why should I be forced to upgrade?! I'm happy with my 11 year old OS dammit!"
"I'm sick of Microsoft always changing things!"
"Get off my lawn ya damn kids!"
But most interestingly:
"Why should I be forced to upgrade my hardware to run this new OS?!"
Really? I mean I know there's this unwritten law that newer software requires more resources but my experience with Windows 8 has always been that's it's way faster certainly than Windows 7 was on the same hardware, but it's my recollection that XP was never really as snappy as 8 is now on any hardware. So I dug up the oldest, crustiest hardware I could get my hands on and did some tests.
