Microsoft has stated: 1. XP will no longer be available after January, 2008. 2. Support for XP Home will continue for 2 years after XP is no longer available. There will be no Extended Support. 3. Extended Support for XP Pro will continue for 5 years after Support has ended for XP Home... That's currently, 2015. If you have a Dell computer with a PATA controller (like a Dimension 8300 and earlier), I have a few Dell XP Pro + SP2 Reinstallation Disks which you can use to upgrade your OS.... they work great. I've used these disks on 4 of my computers without any problem installing them or using Windows Update. These disks do not have a SCSI nor SATA controller driver, so they don't work on the newest rigs. $20, each. Shipping included. A retail copy of XP Pro is $149, minimum firstname.lastname@example.org 303-777-9649 Ron H.
