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.

Shout it from the rooftops!
Post it in the forums!

Install a dual boot Linux solution,
Install a fresh linux o/s,
Go buy an Apple
Whatever, but break free from Microsoft.

Refuse to buy the next computer with windows
pre-installed.
Call up a vendor to buy, but then tell them
you're not buying it with the Vista tax included.

We saw with the Dell/Vista episode that millions
of customers can bend the will of Microsoft.
It's time to seize control and wield the power
of our numbers.

Can you imagine how good XP or 2000 could be if
Microsoft didnt spend all their time and money
inventing new, unwanted crap, but spent it perfecting
the best products they ever made?
