A computer clerk at a Costco in the central valley recently told a customer that Windows XP would no longer be supported as of the end of this year. WRONG! Windows XP will be supported until 2009, with extended support to 2014.
Also, Microsoft is working on releasing service pack 3 for XP in the following year.
If you have an old computer and need to replace it, you just might want to do it soon, because as of June 30th 2008, it will be hard to find an Windows XP system.
