Windows XP- A Glorious Diamond in Microsoft's crown

Just a few days back I was browsing Paul Thurrot's Supersite for Windows. An excellent resource for anybody using Microsoft's products. Being an avid fan of Microsoft, I find this site an ever-resourceful information mine, catering to the Microsoft buff within me!!

I came across a
review of PowerToys for XP. Microsoft puts it across as,"PowerToys are additional programs that developers work on after a product has been released to manufacturing". Some of the PowerToys that I think inevitable are- Open Command Window Here, Tweak UI, Image Resizer and the Virtual Desktop Manager. The Virtual Desktop Manager PowerToy is very useful for developers and IT professionals, in particular.

Straying away from the topic, naa..naa! Windows XP, the priceless diamond in Microsoft's crown, is continually polished, revved up and beautified by these nifty little tools. These toys go a long way in enriching the end-user experience. And it continues to show the passion which Microsoft shows towards Windows XP, by-far the most pleasing OS from the Redmond stable..!! And please don't accuse Microsoft of the numerous security vulnerabilities that are dug out month after month in XP. Any software with such a huge user-base and meticulously going through a proper software life cycle is bound to have such issues..!

See u soon..!
