EDIT: I also firmly believe a lot of people hate on Apple simply because they can't afford it. They'll never, ever admit it -- and make up all kinds of excuses -- but I'm convinced it's the truth.edit on 10-4-2014 by MystikMushroom because: (no reason given)
Sorry but Apple are as bad as MS used to be, Apple is style over substance they are a bunch of money grabbing B&^3^%$£S for example why should I need extra hardware to connect my wife's ipad to my wifi printer when for example my Samsung Galaxy Tab doesn't, even any of the 3 PS3's dotted around the house can with no problems!
Also look at the problems with the iphone 5/ipad mini charger's lasting only a few weeks, with some of the hardware issues they have had over the last couple of years it's just as well they have itunes for revenue.

That's not an XP limitation, that's a limitation with all the 32 bit OSes. The 64 bit version of XP isn't limited to 4 gigs, just as the 64 bit versions of later operating systems aren't limited to 4 gigs, but the 32 bit versions of later operating systems are still limited to 4 gigs just like the 32 bit version of XP.
There are some slight gains in memory capacity between XP 64 bit and later 64 bit, but they are of no practical value to anyone I know of (unless you use the home versions where memory is actually more limited on Windows 7):
I stand corrected. I thought both versions of xp had 4 gig limit.
My experience is completely different. I had lots of crashes with everything prior to windows 2000, but with windows 2000 and XP I almost never, and I mean almost never, have operating system related crashes.
The Microsoft OS XP is and always has MEDIOCRE AT BEST as well it’s lousy slow browser.
Every time it crashes I wonder about the billionaires from Microsoft and how they are little better than gangsters.
I have been a PC specialist for a long time and of all the Microsoft versions the only one that worked well was windows 3.11 way back in time and they quickly moved out of that version to the next mediocre OS, I think win95.
So believe me there will be little lost with the company abandoning this lousy crashing monstrosity.
