Has M$ sabotaged Windown XP?

Michael Andersen (666) writes "Is it just me? Or has Microsoft sabotaged XP lately, possibly to 'help' Vista sales along. I work in IT, and I get one machine after the other in to be fixed, and they all suffer from the most mysterious sickness. They boot up, then after a little while the disk access increases, and it continues to increase until the machine is deadlocked. In my many years in IT and in the history og Windows XP, I have never experienced so many problems at once. Windows XP has always been pretty stable and reliable, and now that Vista sales are lagging, XP performs worse than ever. I know that people will yell at me for acting paranoid, but hey, M$ has created this state in people themselves by using every trick known to mandkind to get further ahead, so no I wouldn't but anything past them anymore! I have had a few people tell me that they have updated to Vista because it gave them better performance on their exsistent hardware!! anyone who has ever used Vista know that, that's not possible !! P.S. If I dissapear, You know who did it!! Cheers, Michael"
