Microsoft Announces 5 More Weeks of Winter, 10 Years of OS Support

Dante D’Orazio:

What does the news mean for each of the current versions of Windows? Well, XP will be officially supported for all until April 8th, 2014, Vista until April 11, 2017, and 7 until January 14th, 2020. Unless Windows 8 gets delayed for quite a while, it looks like Microsoft will soon be working hard to keep four different operating systems up to date until it pulls the plug on XP in a couple of years.

Please fire Steve Ballmer.
