Windows Microsoft originally said that new owners of Windows 7 who wanted to downgrade to XP would only have until 2011 to do so, but now the company has changed its mind and extended support for the old operating system until 2020.

Please, please, Microsoft; PLEASE kill Windows XP. Soon. Now, if possible. Forcibly upgrade all end-user machines to Windows 7 as soon as possible. Keep enterprise installations intact, but don't extend any support contracts unless the business switches to Windows 7.

They would be stupid in doing that. They are a business. Their target is making money. And there are multi-billion corporations that have not yet approved Win7 for enterprise use. So cutting off Win XP would be cutting off their income significantly.

But where I agree is consumer use of Win XP should be cut off ASAP. I have a netbook with WinXP bought Jan 2009.
