Windows Microsoft will shutter its Windows XP line June 30, as planned, ceasing sales of Windows XP Professional and Windows XP Home to retailers and direct OEMs, Microsoft confirmed to eWEEK April 3. The statement from Redmond executives ends weeks of speculation that Microsoft would extend the life of the operating system as users turn up their nose at Vista, the operating system meant to supplant XP, and OEMs argue lighter versions of desktops and notebooks don't have the juice to run Vista.

It is not wise choice, but after all - its their company, not mine. If I could make one decision on behalf of Microsoft - I will cease the sales of XP and restart the sales of Windows 2000. In its current state. It is still far more useful system than Vista.

I still regret that I do not purchased one boxed Windows 2000 when it was possible.
