Windows XP to be sold until June 30, 2008

Posted by Benjamin J. Romano at 5:01 PM

Microsoft said this afternoon that it's extending the deadline for retailers and OEMs to stop selling Windows XP from Jan. 30, 2008, to June 30. The move was chalked up to demand from small businesses for the older product and Microsoft's "overambitious" goal of switching the world to Vista, launched Jan. 30, in only 12 months.

Check out this story for details.

Anyone out there considering a switch from XP to Vista? If so, what's holding you back? And how do you read the extension of the deadline?
