I am skeptical if these dates are correct but: MS has the nerve to end support for Windows XP Home Edition in late 2006 (31/12/06), just after the release of Windows Vista.

It states similarly for XP Pro (same date as Home Edition for mainstream support), but it has this note beside it which contradicts the date, which states 'Mainstream support will end two years after the next version of this product is released. Extended support will end five years after mainstream support ends.' I remind you it does NOT have this statement for Windows XP Home Edition.

Windows XP Pro info source (look at table):

Is this a mistake guys, or is Microsoft greedy enough to force people like this to upgrade to Windows Vista?

Well, how many Windows 98 exploits do you hear about anymore?
When everyone is using Vista then the black hats will start gunning for it and those with Windows XP will finally have a secure operating system. Obscurity=security :smile:
