The sky is clear and the grass is green. You have accompanied us for many years. And now it's time for you to enjoy a retired life. I bid you farewell, dear friend.

Faster than the speeding light, she's flying...
Trying to remember, where it all began!
She's got herself a little piece of heaven,
Waiting for the time when Earth shall be as one!

(From "Ray Of Light" used in the Windows XP Commercial back in 2001)

Wow, from the thumbnail, not reading the title, I thought this looked a lot like a Windows pic. Very nice job :)

For some reason NES emulators work best on XP.

Windows XP. You will live on forever in our hearts.
It actually still lives on one of my PCs. Certain software only works on the older machines.
I would not have been able to complete Megaman X Fanimation if it wasn't for XP:…

Thanks for the nostalgia of a os I still use. Though I know I will have to update later when the time calls for it.

I don't want to leave you, but I have to. They insist that I leave you. It is not safe, or as they say. They won't support you, because they only care about younger generations.

I......must go to who they will support. I may try to make her like you, or I may get saddened trying. There will never be a replacement.

We will meet again. I promise. I don't have the resources now, but some day. You will be supported, not by them, but by us just like previous generations. So keep a cheerful face, until we meet again!

A beautiful and deserved tribute! The Windows XP, together with the Windows 98, was the O.S. that more pleased me.
The W7 also this one going well, but I recognize the XP like something that will be greatly missed, a reference of good product.

I'm not sure if you made it on purpose though, I like how the road resembles the taskbar a bit.

God how I will miss Windows XP...
I still remember the days when I used to use only paint to draw...
