I found this thread a little bit ago on Game Booster forums...

Windows XP Support Will End in 2014

If you're a fan of Windows Updates don't expect them to last too much longer for Windows XP. Speaking to Information Week, Rich Reynolds, general manager for Windows Commercial marketing, said "There's absolutely no chance" that Windows XP's support will be extended beyond April 2014. So if you've been holding out on upgrading to Windows 7 (or are waiting patiently for next years' Windows 8), it's time to consider upgrading in the next couple of years.

Ah, memories.


That may sound like a long time for most of us, but for businesses and schools whose entire infrastructure may have been built in and around Windows XP, that date is just around the corner. Speaking of dates, today is Windows XP's birthday -- it turns 10 years old today (post posted on:10-25-2011 07:15 PM). What better way to celebrate a birthday than to announce when it's going to die, eh?

Its not according to the Internet. This is a prophecy from the ancient Maya, Chinese, Egyptian, and Hopi Indian cultures. Plus it was on the History Channel... and they would NOT lie!Image
