XP staying, in a way ?

Microsoft yesterday granted a partial pardon for Windows XP operating system; it means computers with lower system capabilities such as Asus Eee, Intel Classmate PC and those PCs that generally lack the hardware needed to run Windows Vista will imagestill be able to run Windows XP till June 30, 2010 or one year after the release of the next OS version (code named Windows 7), which ever is later.


After this date Windows XP will no longer come pre-installed on most new PC’s. Microsoft will provide XP to some computer makers so that they can continue preinstalling Windows XP Home. I think Microsoft made this move because without XP these computer will install Linux and ..although Microsoft yesterday maintained that it made the move not to stymie the growth of Linux.

But Windows XP Professional is not getting the same extension. Windows XP still goes away on the dates Microsoft has already set for ending sales.

What are XP users going to do ?
