Microsoft announced this week that it will continue to support Windows XP until at least 2010:
Microsoft has originally planned to end its support service in late January 2009 as it prepares the global launch of the Windows Vista next-generation operating system for personal computers next Tuesday.

But Darren Huston, president of Microsoft's Japan unit, said Wednesday there had been requests from consumers, especially in Japan, for a longer support period.

"It is going to be significantly extended" he said in an interview with Kyodo News. "When I say significantly, it's more than 1 year."
