If you’re concerned about Microsoft’s end of support for Windows XP, you may wish to check out this unappreciated gem – “POSReady 2009”.

In this video, I cover installation, activation, and other general information on the operating system.

  1. The design is the same as Microsoft had for Windows Media Center Edition 2003 — which never had a big market share but was actually only a Windows xp with Media Center lol…
