New Microsoft issues new version of XP
[link|http://pcworld.co.nz/pcworld/pcw.nsf/feature/FB66F9354CECAFA1CC25733500728C08|PC World]
Microsoft has had to create a new build of Windows XP Professional for computer makers because the six-year-old operating system's continued popularity has nearly exhausted the supply of product activation keys.

The new build, dubbed SP2c, includes no fixes or feature changes, but was created simply to address the shrinking pool of product keys. XP Pro SP2c, which has been released to manufacturing, will be made available to OEMs and system builders next month, said Microsoft.

Xp is still selling strong, at numbers far above Microsoft's projections and desires.

Theoretically XP is still scheduled to begin phase out at the end of January 2008, but with a new release going out in September you have to expect that to be extended at least some.

New No changes? So it still needs 89 patches . . .
. . applied immediately after install?

New My new lapper came with the new version...
Yeap, its got the new product codes and everything.

Hmm, perhaps Micorosft is seeing GOLD in them thar hills of Old.

Lenovo is selling massive qtys of XP vs Vista.

Dell is still selling about 60% XP of the Windows being sold to corporations. Many consumers are still buying XP, or other OSes.

HP is stealth selling now... from what I hear you have to know the URL to get to it and it isn't purty.

Acer, believe it or not also has been dabbling...

New I need to keep the WndowsXP
on, to do testing for our Windows Product. Which is actually an Active Perl thinger.

And, my Lapper has 2 Windows versions on it already. The WindowsXP regular working edition and the Windows2000 version for Diagnostics.

But, if I could I'd just have all Linux and no Windows what so ever, it feels icky-gooey (or GUI).

New Corp purchases are misleading
Mine has been buying Vista licenses with an across the board "downgrade" license to put our XP images on all systems. Vista is in use in extremely limited quantities. Mostly compatibility testing for our products. We have several critical internal apps that simply won't run on Vista.
