I am sure this is old news for people who know MS licensing, but I had no idea.

If you are a big user you can get continued XP support for a price: $200 per install per year with a ceiling of $250,000:

The British government (as always, the biggest suckers in IT purchasing) paid 5.5m just before MS announced the ceiling [telegraph.co.uk ]

We mentioned about the UK Government paying for extended support [webmasterworld.com] for XP, and noted that Microsoft dramatically reduced the cost of extended support [webmasterworld.com] as well.

Oops, missed that. I did wonder why I had not seen any mention of it here - I did not check that forum because it is marked deprecated.
