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.

Or do yourself and your wallet an even bigger favour and try a recent GNU/Linux. Fedora or Ubuntu would be fine choices

...and be sure that there are plenty of affordable Linux support companies, whose will be happy to address all your problems with xorg.conf, fstab, menu.lst or even help you to fix that broken GNOME calculator tool in Ubuntu 8.04 - and all this (and more!) at a very attractive monthly fee contracts!
