Most of the regular users of this Microsoft software, especially the most veteran ones, remember some of these versions of the system with a smile. Few will forget their first steps in Windows 95, the arrival of Windows 7, so it was the start-up of Windows XP. And it is precisely about the latter that we want to talk to you in these same lines.
Windows XP celebrates 20 years since its launch
We tell you all this because the aforementioned Windows Xp Today, October 25, it celebrates 20 years of life since its official launch. It is true that it is a software that no longer receives any official support from the firm, but that does not mean that it has lost the affection of millions of users. In fact, we still find some equipment working with this system, for example, at the business level. This is mainly due to some certain compatibility issues with certain applications.
Being the successor of Windows ME and 2000, its launch was made in order to somehow unite Windows 95 and NT, all with resounding success. Although the firm wanted to replace this operating system with Vista 6 years after its launch, due to the little impact of this new version, XP continues as the leader in the high sector 2012. Precisely for all this, for those who used this edition for many years of the operating system, this is a somewhat special date.

Changing third, now we are going to enter other sectors of the software which have also gained a lot of importance over the last few years. We are referring to internet browsers AND programs for videoconferencing, both softwares that often go hand in hand. Well, we are talking about all this because one of the leaders in the sector, Skype, has just received an important upgrade. It is true that Microsoft is betting heavily on Teams these days, but that doesn’t necessarily mean Skype has been abandoned.
In fact, the latest version of Skype brings the application to version 8.78 and includes important changes. Here we want to make a special mention of the compatibility with Firefox for the web version of the platform. It is worth mentioning that this is a feature that did not exist until now, although it is a bit striking. To give us an idea, Skype on the web ran almost in any browser except Safari and Firefox. But it seems that the firm has finally decided to allow the use of its videoconferencing program in Mozilla software.
