Tech Columnist Finally Ditches WinXP

How can you write about computers and technology for a living and still be using Windows XP? I think we're being trolled.

On a cloudy day last week, at 11:43 in the morning, I turned off my Windows XP-loaded Dell for the last time. It made a little whining, sighing noise as it powered down.
