Windows XP is the most successful operating system from Microsoft since its initial launch to the launch of Windows 7. Windows XP was released in August 2001 and since then it has ruled for almost 10 years.  Windows XP was able to beat Microsoft’s Windows Vista easily but at this moment of time, the popularity of Windows XP is declining with the increase in the popularity of Windows 7.
