I hate XP

Well, they migrated my desktop box at work over to XP. And, as expected, it sucks out loud. No more Semagic, AIM, I had to beg to get RealPlayer. And they have arbitrarily decided that they will install everyone's critical updates at noon, which means at noon every day, everyone gets booted off their computer. Sure, there's a dialog box that says "To complete installation, you must restart your computer. Do you want to restart now? If no response is given, your computer will be restarted in 5 minutes." But fat lot of good that does anyone if the "No." button is grayed out. Lame, lame, a thousand times lame. I fired off an angry email to IT (just as soon as my computer rebooted and promptly un-installed at least one critical update that fubared Outlook).

Why? That's all I ask. Why?
