Windows XP will live for another two years

April 7 2008

Microsoft has extended the delivery of computer manufacturers to its Windows XP operating system for another two years - until June 30, 2010 This deal only applies to low-cost systems - the more powerful PC manufacturers will be required as early as July of this year to make another choice.

The company noted that the supply of Windows XP will continue for years after a new version of the operating system after Vista. This gives an indication that the new OS, also known as Windows 7, will be released in the middle of next year, despite the denial received from the company earlier this year. About this conveys Cnews.

Recall that in April 2007, the company announced that it intends to stop supplying Windows XP OEM-producers to February 1, 2008, however, while only one in ten was willing to part with XP, to move to a new version of the OS. In September 2007, Microsoft extended the delivery system for five months - until June 30, 2008 Rumors that the company once again extends the lifespan of Windows XP, go for some time, but analysts were inclined to believe that this step the company all did not go.
