I never really thought about WHY Win XP is CALLED Win XP until recently (When I realized the elite epix that it was and is)
So....Why is it called XP?
Did 'Uncle Bill' just feel like making his systems name a crossed eyed-tongue sticky emoticon? (Probably not)

(I didnt see it in Wikipedia by the way ;D )

(and dont get on me for using Wikipedia, I know the advantages and disadvantages)

(thanks for answering ;D )
