I do not think, they have a choice. Vista did not penetrate as it was expected. Many people are returning to XP. I personally has several requests from our customers to downgrade to XP. If they will not support it, users will migrate to Mac. Simple like that.

if i have my way, any new computer i have will have xp in it, with option to upgrade to whatever the tech guy i know says for me to upgrade to. vista itself is not so great, i have come across replies on techboards where people have said that they have hated it.

Hi, I'm happy to hear that Windows XP will continue until 2014. After 2014, what operating system should we use? Linux or Mac? Which one is better?

Hi, I tried ubuntu before but I'm totally blurred and confused how to use it. Some of the hardware of my computer can't run properly using ubuntu and I don't know where to get the driver for it.

Yah XP rocks and will continue rocking till 2014 or when they get in into their thick skulls that Vista is a disaster. I even upgraded to SP3 and it really rocks.

Oh,that's a good news. Although my computer is 64bit Vista,I think the Windows XP is more easy to use. Lots of softwear can't run on Vista and Vista need high hard platform to run. So,if Windows XP as your said,I consider if come back. I hear of the Windows 7 will publish in 2010.It's that ture?
