Microsoft Windows XP To Continue Untill 8th April 2014 | Enters “Extended Support” phase

Windows XP, possibly be considered the most popular operating system the company has ever conceived, has recently entered “Extended Support” phase. 

Even though Microsoft introduced XP’s successor, Windows Vista, during the start of 2007, many people declined to update to the latest operating system because of resource hogging issues along with immense hardware requirements.

What Microsoft essentially means by “Extended Support”:
Extended Support does alter the range of support a bit, but for the vast majority of customers the essential core remains the same. For example, customers will continue to receive free security updates and can call in for paid support until the second Tuesday in April of 2014. Enterprise customers with Premier Support who may need non-security hotfixes (such as design change requests) should consider enrolling in an optional support program named Extended Hotfix Support (EHS). EHS is required by very few customers as the product has matured to the point where design changes are relatively infrequent. For more information on obtaining Extended Hotfix Support, enterprise customers should contact their Microsoft account representative.

Windows XP was released on October 25, 2001. For a detailed timetable of product lifecycle information, please visit the Microsoft Support Lifecycle page. “Extended Support” for Windows XP ends April 14, 2014.
