Windows XP sales extended by 5 months

Post by The Masked Marauder » Wed Oct 10, 2007 2:16 am

Microsoft gives Windows XP five-month reprieve
It will sell the old OS until June 2008, even with Vista selling "pretty well"

Translation:
1) Vista isn't selling as well as we'd like you to believe.
2) Many people aren't happy with Vista's features, performance, and hardware requirements.
3) If Microsoft cuts off XP to spite its face, they're gonna be hurting.
