Windows XP availability extended to 2011

Posted on Wednesday, June 24 2009 @ 00:25:26 CEST by

Microsoft is giving OEMs more time to sell Windows XP computers, the software giant announced the lifespan of this aging operating system could be extended to as late as April 2011.
"Windows 7 Professional and Ultimate customers will have the option to downgrade to Windows XP Professional from PCs that ship within 18 months following the general availability of Windows 7 or until the release of a Windows 7 service pack, whichever is sooner, and if a service pack is developed," a company spokeswoman said in an e-mail.


Assuming that Microsoft holds off delivering Windows 7 SP1, it's possible that OEMs could be selling XP-equipped PCs as late as April 2011.
