I just realised on this link:

http://download.microsoft.com/download/ ... ySetup.exe

That M$ still refer to XP as whistler. I wonder if they did this deliberately or if they just couldn't be bothered changing it?

They probably just kept the folder name, because it would be too hard to change all of the link titles.

Was it necessary to resurrect a 6-month old thread?

Yes, that was what I was referring to. It was informational, but on the other hand, the thread is more than seven months old.

No joke: If you try to get your posts that way, you won't succeed.
