This means that you can use the Windows XP but the support from the Microsoft end will be ended. The KB articles and updates will be stopped from their end. But you can still use these OS of your own with available updates and features from the microsoft.Thursday, June 07, 2012 6:01 AM
We all have 1yr 9mos. In order to switch over Windows 7. Anthony Mann has pretty well set everything up for us now. Maybe by April 08, 2014, there could be something else besides Windows 7. But in other words you'll will have this time to make the switch or buy a new computer with the program already download for you. Who know you might not even be here by them. I check out everything Anthony stated, it's all there. What's that old story, snooze you lose!!!

I just stumbled across this announcement. Why was is not part of a XP update? Surprise! I wonder how many people will never know.
Will those with licensed copies of XP get a free download of 7?
Fast-forwarding four months, I don't know about '7' but Microsoft is offering XP subscribers the chance to upgrade to '8' (by end of Jan., '13) for a paltry $40. , but, you must download online. A disc with Windows 8-Pro can be snail-mailed but will cost more.Friday, January 25, 2013 9:45 PM
