Microsoft will force PC makers to stop selling machines running XP by the end of this year, despite ongoing compatibility problems and demand for XP from users.

Demand for XP is particularly strong among small and medium-sized businesses, according to Dell, which announced it will continue offering some machines with XP pre-installed.

However, the clock is ticking, and Dell and other PC makers will be obliged to stop selling machines running XP by the end of the year, despite ongoing compatibility and performance issues with Windows Vista.

Somehow I don't think this will be the last word we hear on this issue. Microsoft has made a number of changes to its policies of late after listening to the consumers. If there's a large enough outcry/demand I'll bet we'll see XP being sold into next year.
