Windows XP Expiry Date Extended

Posted on: October 4, 2008

Microsoft‘s longest living operating system Windows XP still has life left in it. Microsoft had instructed retailers to stop selling XP to consumers this summer. But customers purchasing new computers running Windows Vista can downgrade to Windows XP. That option was set to expire on January 31st, 2009. Microsoft has given OEMs  additional six months to sell PCs running Windows Vista with the ability to downgrade to Windows XP using an accompanying recovery disc. Now you can choose the option to downgrade till July 31st, 2009.

Now there seems to be a chance to skip Vista altogether and going directly to Windows 7.
