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.

Even so, if you do have such a problem ... a support contract is probably not required because there is a whole community of support ...


Today is a "day two" since I reported #211316 bug in Launchpad:

Status - new
Importance - undecided.

I wonder if they fix it on time - it will be quite amusing to receive CD from shipit with broken gcalctool ;)

I also found it quite amusing that Vista and OSX shipped with File/copy errors. No OS is perfect but that is what updates are for.
