Windows "I can't count how many times people have asked me if Windows XP would be available on new PCs following Vista's release. In the near term, the answer is as much a factor of user demand and OEM and system builder policies. That said, Microsoft will make Windows XP available for from 12 to 24 months after Vista's general availability, depending on the sales channel."

The only problem I see is that support is going to run out for XP sooner rather than later.

we estimate Windows XP Professional Mainstream Support ending in late December 2008, with Extended Support ending in December of 2013

I couldn't find it on Microsoft's website.

XP Home support is going to be ending even sooner than that but shouldn't really matter.
Most home users are happy with what they get.
