As MS announced way back in 2008, support for Windows XP Service Pack 2 (SP2) will end on July 13, 2010.

Support for Windows 2000 will end on the same date.

Customers running an unsupported version of Windows or Windows service pack will not be eligible for any Microsoft support options.

Updates, including security updates released with bulletins from the Microsoft Security Response Center, will be reviewed and built for the supported versions and service packs only. The most current service packs are available to organizations, and they are easily deployed via Windows Update, Windows Server Update Services/Microsoft System Center, and the Microsoft Download Centre.

To better understand the Microsoft Support Lifecycle Policy and your support options visit the Microsoft Support Lifecycle page.

Win 7 is epic good. Sure it takes a little getting used to but its by far and away the best MS OS ever.
