Stripped Down Windows XP Delayed
Microsoft is planning on releasing a “stripped down” version of Windows XP for legacy systems (systems that shipped with, say, Windows 95) so that they could drop all security updates on older systems. Now, that release has been delayed.
“Windows Fundamentals can run on older machines that do not support XP while providing the same level of security. The system could be utilized as a Remote Desktop or Citrix client, along with supporting management tools, terminal emulation software, and viewing of some documents. Microsoft did not give a specific reason for the delay, but the company has been focusing most of its efforts on finishing Windows Vista.”
