Many windows users still like and use XP, it is one of the most popular operating system till date and it seems that it isn’t going out of service any time soon.

Microsoft has been offering downgrade from vista to XP, now they say they are going to extend it to Windows 7 too.

While it is true that Vista was/is too resource heavy to run in low powered computers like netbooks so as to keep the market share of Windows high and not to give way to Linux. But this isn’t required in case of Windows 7 as it is perfectly capable of running in netbooks and low powered PCs.

You have to remember that you just can’t walk into a store and purchase Windows XP, you have to downgrade. For netbook users the downgrade is most likely to be limited as Windows 7 isn’t a resource hog. The downgrade option would most likely benefit corporate customers who aren’t ready to upgrade to Windows 7. You might have to purchase Windows 7 Enterprise or Ultimate edition to qualify for the downgrade.

Microsoft isn’t commenting on the deadline for downgrading to Windows XP. But an early report indicated that the downgrade option would be available through April 30, 2010.
