Windows Hot on the heels of our previous story outlining the fiasco that Vista's release has been, TechRepublic's Jason Hiner predicts that Microsoft is aware of its blunder and will respond by making a release of Windows 7 ahead of schedule (primarily by overhauling Vista and calling it Windows 7, it seems) in order to encourage its enterprise clients to upgrade directly from XP to Windows 7.

All the information I've found (and I'm only trusting information direct from Microsoft), tends to suggest that extended support will end on 31st December 2011.

Microsoft's policy on support is 5 years from release date for mainstream support (Release date of XP being 31st December 2001), once mainstream support ends, extended support runs for a further 5 years, taking us to 31st December 2011.

I'm not suggesting you are wrong, I'm just interested to know your source, as I'd like to know the definitive answer to this.
