Remembering the glory days of Windows XP: 2001-2014

We look back with affection on some of the idiosyncracies of the Windows XP operating system.

1. The always helpful messages.

2. The eerily accurate predictions of the future.

3. The warm welcome.

4. The selfless devotion to your protection.

5. Giving you the full multimedia experience.

6. And the games – such great memories. From humble games like Solitaire…

7. To more adventurous titles like Rollercoaster Tycoon 2

8. And Sim City. RIP XP!
