If you still want to get your hands on Windows XP, you only have four weeks left! The last day for sales of Windows XP is June 30, 2008. Here’s everything you need to know to get ready for July 1st:

Why is Windows XP no longer available?

The short answer is that Windows XP has now been replaced by Windows Vista. Since Service Pack 1 was released for Vista earlier this month, Microsoft will be focusing most of its efforts on supporting and maintaining Vista

What happens to my computer running Windows XP?

Absolutely nothing. After June 30, new PCs will come with Windows Vista installed. However, your existing computer running Windows XP will continue to function normally. You will continue to receive Windows Updates until April 14, 2009. After that, Microsoft is scheduled to continue issuing minor security updates until April 8, 2014.

What if I buy a new computer?

New computers purchased after June 30 will only come with Vista. (If you still have unused Windows XP licenses, don’t worry: after June 30, unused Windows XP licenses can still be installed on new systems.)

What if my computer breaks? Will I still be able to use Windows XP?

Unless you purchase a new computer, you will still be able to run Windows XP on your machine, even after it has been repaired, provided you still have the installation media (CDs) and a valid license.

If I still want a computer running Windows XP, how can I get one?

Servcom USA will stop issuing quotes for systems with Windows XP on June 6th, 2008. In order for us to fulfill your order for systems with Windows XP preinstalled, payment will need to be received NO LATER than Tuesday, June 24th. If you still have unused Windows XP licenses, don’t worry: after June 30, unused Windows XP licenses can still be installed on new systems.

Is this going to happen again?

Yes. Microsoft will eventually stop supporting Windows Server 2003 and Vista, one day. If you don’t want to get caught flat-footed by the constant upgrade cycle, let us help you manage your licenses! With a little planning, we can reduce the cost of replacing your operating systems and help you stay up-to-date for years to come!

I still have questions.
