Microsoft will provide more years of support for Windows XP
Microsoft has extended the number of years it will be supporting Windows XP, even out to 2014, but how long depends on which version of Windows.
It looks to me like if you have XP Home Edition, you might find you only have 2 years of support after Vista is released, but it's hard to tell. If you have XP Tablet 2005, then you appear to have 2 years mainstream support plus another 5 years of extended support. According to PC Pro the dates might even extend further than that, and will include security updates.
At any rate, that's good news for those who are looking for deals on new computers during the transition to Vista. And it also gives some comfort to UMPC fans who want to buy a device right away, before Vista is available on them.
