Jan pointed me to this article on Neowin.net. Apparently Windows XP will be getting a 5 month extension; instead of being axed on Jan. 31, 2008 Microsoft will continue selling Windows XP until June 30, 2008 thanks to successful lobbying by large PC manufacturers.
This is good news for me, and I'm sure a lot of other people. I have absolutely NO plans on upgrading to Vista. I feel like there will be nothing but headaches at the expense of computer resources. All for what? "Mac-inspired" graphics.
Are you going to upgrade?
