No more Windows XP on 2008

Microsoft will stop selling Windows XP to PC developers and PC sellers next year — 2008. So, if you buy new PC, you will not get Windows XP installed but instead you will get Windows Vista ready in the PC.

Microsoft will stop selling Windows XP to PC makers such as Dell, Lenovo and Hewlett-Packard by January 31, a company representative confirmed Thursday. The software maker will stop selling XP to system builders, the smaller custom PC makers, a year later, the representative said.

This means, Microsoft want to wash away all Windows XP and users will have Windows Vista in their home. But for current Windows XP users, to move from Windows XP to Windows Vista will cost them more money. This is because, Vista use high performance and system resources and peoples need to upgrade their system.

But, before you decided to upgrade your system, maybe you might want to check your system here, Is your system ready for Windows Vista upgrade?. If your system is ready to use Widnows Vista, don’t wasting your money on the upgrade.
