If you're one of the millions of XP SP 2 or Windows 2000 users who likes their old operating system just fine, thank you, be prepared to go it alone. As of July 13, 2010 Microsoft will end support for you. The move is clearly part of the Microsoft strategy to kill XP (aka OSRD, the Operating System that Refuses to Die). XP has proven to be such a solid and stable operating system that millions of people have so far refused to upgrade to either Windows Vista or Windows 7, to the unending frustration of Microsoft. Ending support for both XP SP 2 and Windows 2000 server and client next year may not have a significant effect on most users. When was the last time you actually got support from Microsoft, after all? And support will still continue for XP with later service packs installed - extended support for XP SP3 ends in April, 2014 or two years after a release of XP SP 4, if such a thing ever happens.
i have known on atleast 2 occasions this year of ppl with XP doing windows update & getting a virus in the updates,Microsoft as good as said "use vista, it wont happen" like its deliberate to get you to move to their "controlled OS"
with vista, and windows7 you are not admin of your PC, vista/win7 is, it tells you what you can & cant do
