About this product:
While most businesses have soundly rejected Vista and are tenaciously hanging on to Windows XP until Microsoft comes up with a better operating system (OS), the day of reckoning approaches. The reason: Microsoft drove another bloody stake into XP on April 14, 2009, when it officially ended “mainstream support” for the OS. This means that your warranty on XP is void. It also means that if you want support on XP other than basic patches or basic security upgrades, you’ll have to pay Microsoft under a separate, “extended support” agreement.

What if the result was bottom-line revenue?
