I have decided to upgrade to Windows XP. I probably should have done this a long time ago but I hesitated. Anyways, this will be no small undertaking. I’ll have to backup all my data just in case something weird happens during installation. I’ll also have to re-install all my applications again. What a pain in the ass.
The backup will probably take several days. I can see this all going to hell at the critical hour. If you don’t hear from me for several days, it will be because of the upgrade.
