Investment Opportunity of the Year
El Reg reports that Microsoft claims to be sticking to its timetable for shutting down XP.
No fewer than three people told me yesterday, “This means I have to buy that Mac Book Pro this year. They can’t be alone. I have several co-workers running Vista running on laptops, and even without the overhead of a VM, it’s slow.
Thus, an investing opportunity presents itself — buy a number of copies of XP this year, and then resell them at a profit. There are, of course, many risks in this strategy too obvious to name, but hey, money is risk.
If during the holiday shopping season, you see a run on copies of XP, take note.
