Microsoft to stop selling Windows XP

Any XP lovers out there 😉 ??? Your Attention Please!!!

Microsoft Corp. is scheduled to stop selling its Windows XP operating system to retailers and major computer makers from June 30th 2008, but Microsoft said it would extend technical support for six-year-old Windows XP through 2014, instead of 2009 as planned. This in a way forces the users to use XP’s successor, Vista. If there is anyone out there who cannot live without XP on their machines here is an alternative: They will have to buy Vista Ultimate or Vista Business and then legally “downgrade” to XP. Whow!!! Great deal there- Buy Vista and downgrade to XP. Is anyone going to do this? I would actually suggest Microsoft to make XP available for free download or order free CDs.

Excerpt from post on Associated Press:

Once computers loaded with XP have been cleared from the inventory of PC makers such as Dell Inc. and Hewlett-Packard Co., consumers who can’t live without the old operating system on their new machine will have to buy Vista Ultimate or Vista Business and then legally “downgrade” to XP.
