The latest operating system that are launched by Microsoft almost sells seven copies in one second and the company is releasing the copies in a quick manner but there is no match to the behemoth and huge operating system which is released by Microsoft i.e. the Windows XP operating system. Windows XP is considered to be the most popular operating system all over the world in spite of all of the recent nefarious attempts to invoke the spontaneous shutdowns, the slowing down of the hard drives as well as the triggering of the blue screens. Actually, it has also been admitted by one exec of the Microsoft that in the practical manner there are three quarters of the computers of the business that are running the nine year old operating system till now on the averaging of the hardware which is 4.4 years old.

Extended life of Windows XP

It has also been reported by the Computerworld that the Microsoft Inc. would be extending the lifespan of the Windows XP. In one official post of the Windows blog it is written that moving forward, the businesses would be able to buy the latest PCs and would also be able to utilize the downgrade rights of the end users to the Windows XP or the Windows Vista operating systems till the time they are ready to use the new operating system released by Microsoft i.e. the Windows 7.

Additional cost for the upgrade

It has been heard that the company has been reluctant to make the upgrade and it is due to the fact that a reliance of the previous software is there and also the cost of the additional IT is high. Probably it is not going to effects Microsoft in any case and it doggedly keeps the distribution of the operating system in spite of the other choices that are present in the market that are offered by Microsoft. Probably the futuristic operating system Windows 8 would finally win over the workplace. When you look at the bright side of the story then it can be something like this that when the intelligent robots battle for the controlling of the moon, at least the wrathful victors would be vulnerable to the blue screen of the doom.

The upgrade

So it looks as if the date of the year 2020 is kind of incorrect as according to the PR team of Microsoft. We are actually waiting for the official update of some kind and would also let you to know about it if or when it is available to us. One should not be worrying about the robots in the plan.

Second upgrade

The official team blog of Windows has now moved forward for reducing all of this confusion but they have only toned this down a little bit. Microsoft would not be committing to one exact date for the availability of the downgrade of Windows XP, instead of saying that one would be allowed to trade in to the OEM copy of the ultimate or pro version of the Windows 7 till the company stops selling that and which would be two years after the shipment of Windows 8.
