Windows XP to be Kept Alive Through at least 2014

Yes Windows XP sales may finally be phased out by Microsoft but the company will be offering support for the OS through 2014.June 30 is the last day for the OS but people can still buy PC's running the OS or for those who do not want Vista, they could just ask the computer maker to downgrade the machine's OS to XP. Microsoft is also making an exception to the no-sales-beyond-June 30th rule for some low-cost, low-power devices like the Asus Eee PC. The fact that Windows Vista adoption is very slow, Microsoft naturally needs to offer extended support for an operating system that was first released in 2001.
