Windows XP Will Not Die

Filed under: DAILY Dose of PC News 

In a breaking news as of this morning, Gizmodo published an article stating “a leaked email from a PC OEM, [states that] Microsoft has officially extended the life of its now-beloved Windows XP, moving the date of planned obsolescence from January 31, 2009 all the way to July 31, 2009.”

As we’ve discussed before on PC Authorities before, Microsoft has continually pushed the date back for Windows XP’s death. Mostly due to public attention on this matter, it seems Microsoft is beginning to cave. 

This announcement surprises many PC blogging enthusiasts due to the fact that Microsoft has spent millions of dollars on campaigning for Vista, but in this latest move it seems Microsoft may allow users to go from XP to Windows 7 and skip the dreaded Windows Vista.
