Windows All good things come to an end, eventually, and operating systems are no different. Microsoft has reminded the public that support for several Windows versions will end over the coming months, which could likely have significant consequences if you or your company are still running these Windows versions.

i wonder how much will it take for microsoft to battle the market inertia they created themselves this way.

xp is definitely not going down without a fight, and they've already experienced it with vista.

Well, the difference between Vista and Win7 is that Vista (in many people's opinions) was complete ass out of the gate, and many people avoided it like the plague.

When it comes to Win7, I don't think most folks will go out of their way to avoid it. They may be like me and will not go through the trouble of upgrading to it on their current PC, but as they get new PCs, XP's user base will start to dwindle, slowly but surely.
