Support for Windows Vista Service Pack 1 (SP1) ends on July 12, 2011.
Support for Windows XP with Service Pack 2 (SP2) ended on July 13, 2010.
But XP is not dead. Not even by a long shot. Not at over 70% of the operating system market. And this is not about Service Pack 3, this is about the good old anti-Vista, XP SP2. Microsoft will continue to offer support for XP SP2 until July 13, 2010, which is two years from now. And XP SP3 will go even further than that.
"We understand some of our customers aren't ready to upgrade their PCs to Windows Vista. Although Windows XP will disappear from stores, we'll continue to offer Extended Support for the operating system for six more years, until April 2014," Microsoft added.
