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.

If you had bothered to read my previous posts, you would have seen my previous stance on Vista. However, in a few years Vista is going to be the standard, and by then the hardware manufacturers would have to be crazy not to support it, or release buggy drivers for it.
