WinXP delayed? How it could slip beyond October

The Register: “The software itself is stable, but here’s the gag – it’s far too easy to break, and
here’s our example for the day. Over the weekend we contrived to make our CD
drives disappear for quite some while by the simple expedient of installing an HP
CD burner software suite (which includes the dreaded DirectCD). We’ll own this
was a dumb thing to do, but it’s the sort of dumb thing dumb users are going to do,
and the sort of thing WinXP is aimed to shield them from.”
