Microsoft Says No More Windows XP on New Netbooks After October 22

Well, it seems that the venerable Windows XP is slowly coming to an end as Microsoft has announced that no new netbooks will use it after October 22nd. However, it seems the operating system could disappear before that date as Microsoft stated that 81% of all netbooks sold as of this past April have shipped with some form of Windows 7 installed. Whether it is Windows 7 Starter or Home Premium, it seems that the new OS is gaining quick ground in the netbook market. There should still be some netbooks that use Windows XP out there, so if you want to use that then try to grab one of those while you can before this October.

I'm slightly worried about this. The RAM and GPU requirements of Win 7 aren't exactly within reach for most netbooks.
