Five years old?
That sounds like retirement age for an operating system.

Is "Wellington" still in the Daily Mirror? His birthday is/was the 25th October too. ..also my brother's today, but I didn't know it was the fifth birthday of XP. Live and learn, I'm already a mine of useless information though. ..Bingalau..
