New Lease on XP Life

It might not be a reversal of XP's death sentence, but if reports are to be believed, XP did at least get a six-month reprieve and won't be yanked from OEM hands until July 2009.

Some say this is a bunch of hooey, but whether or not Microsoft has formally made the decision, I have to believe the company will offer XP as long as humanly possible. After all, people want it, Microsoft gets paid for it and the monopoly remains intact. Where's the downside? There isn't one.

Tell me where I'm wrong (yeah, I stole that line from Bill-O) at dbarney@redmondmag.com.
