Adieu XP

Today I have removed the last XP installation of XP I had.
XP was probably the best Windows I have ever worked with. And I really worked (albeit mostly as a power user) with all of them since Win 3.0 (on 286 machines).
I proved to be stable and not too resource hungry, quite friendly and customizable and had a tremendous application base running on top of it. Frankly the Professional version of XP is still a good business platform and a decent development one - but I have not much experience on Windows/.NET development.
Inspite of that I have decided to kill the last VM running XP.
Why I did this? 7 seems promising. And I'd like to try it out.
