    Windows XP kicks the bucket (sort of), and effective November 1st, 2008, OEMs will no longer be able to license Windows for Workgroups 3.11 in the embedded channel. Believe it or not, the announcement will come as a disappointment to those who planned to purchase the 16-bit OS. While Win 3.11 has been long gone in the standard (retail/OEM) channel, the old code has continued to be used for specialized applications, like cash registers, train schedule displays, and other lower-horsepower platforms.

    The November deadline provides a timely opportunity to give a gag geek gift this Christmas. Pick up a Win 3.11 license while you still can, and toss it in a stocking along with Windows 3.11 for Dummies. Hey, it beats a pair of socks !


    I didn't even have to annoy people on MSN this time I used a spell check.
