Windows "Responding to feedback from customers and third parties, Microsoft has extended the availability of Windows XP to both original equipment manufacturers and retail channels through to June 30, 2008. Originally slated to be pulled from retail shelves and OEMs on January 30, 2008 - only a year after Windows Vista's debut - customers requested more time to prepare for the upgrade to Vista."

It depends on which Third World country they are referring to. Down here in Jamaica we have systems that are capable of running Vista. We're not an emerging market.

I suppose I myself don't see Jamaica as a third world country - but as a second world (new world) country with problems. Or perhaps I just like the music!

Call it a two-and-a-halfth world coountry? ;)
