Microsoft To End Support For Windows 2000, XP SP2 July 13

Microsoft offers support for its products for five years and extended support for another five years. That time will soon be up for Windows 2000 (desktop and server) and Windows XP SP2: July 13 is the last day that extended support will be available.

According to Microsoft, self-help online support (such as Microsoft online Knowledge Base articles, FAQs, troubleshooting tools, and other resources) will be available for at least a year longer. But paid support, support assistance, and security updates will be discontinued on July 13.

All good things must come to an end, but I suspect XP in particular will be around a long time yet.  8)

What support are they talking about here, not having installed their WGA and other trash my machine seems to have performed well for many years without them needing to issue damaging "updates " that are quickly replaced again month after month, Cheers but no thanks MS  :)

Will XP become heXedP do you think in the future ?
