Since XP removed from retail channels three years ago but remained
available through OEM channels available as downgrade option for
Windows 7. During Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference keynote in
Los Angeles this week and article on Windows team blog, Microsoft
mentioned Windows XP upcoming end-of-life and will stop to release
security patches, hotfixes, updates, online tech support for all
versions of Windows XP on 8 April 2014.

Regard to this announcement, roll out of Windows 7 deployment is the
necessary action for those Windows XP user because Windows XP ‘s PC
will vulnerable to security threats and most of third party vendors
will stop to extend product support for Windows XP environment after
end-of-life. Got to Microsoft’s Support Lifecycle policy page for more
detail.

With the help of tools and guidance, migration to Windows 7 become
more easier. According to Gartner report published last year suggested
that planning for Windows 7 deployment ideally by 2012 and certainly
by mid 2013 before Windows XP supports end.

This is an ad for Microsoft, pretending to be some
sort of sensible IT advice. They've been desperately
spreading "press releases" while tech. media with space
to fill are only too happy to print them.

If you're going to spam newsgroups to get blog traffic
you could at least come up with a useful or interesting
story.

I would think that if it was a true Microsoft ad that the poster would at
least use a spelling and grammar checker of some sort. More likely just
another spammer, as you pointed out :)

Yes, I just meant that the content itself is an ad.
It's clearly copied from some halfwit news site that
makes a living by posting pre-written press releases
as news. (Which is pretty much all news sites, I
suppose.) I can't think of any company other than
Microsoft that can issue a press release saying, "people
should buy our new stuff as soon as possible", and have
it treated as not only front page news, but "information"
with the appearance of scientific research!
