Microsoft extends life of Windows XP
   26 January 2007 at 06h16

SAn Francisco - Microsoft announced that it was extending technical
support for home Windows XP operating systems, a signal that it was
not abandoning them for Vista software launching next week.

Until April 2009

The Redmond, Washington software giant said the "support life cycle"
for Windows XP Home Edition and Windows XP Media Center Edition
would be stretched to April 2009.

Similar support would be provided for users of Windows XP
Professional, according to Microsoft.

Microsoft's next-generation Vista operating system made its business
debut in November and home-computer versions will be launched on
January 30. Vista is Microsoft's first revamped operating system in
five years. - AFP
