After that date, the company will provide “extended” support for another five years until April 8, 2014. However, extended support only includes free security fixes along with paid per-incident support as well as support contracts.

“During the Extended support phase Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT) will provide paid support (example: per-incident telephone/web support, Premier and Essential support, etc.) for all customers … [Additionally,] non-security hotfixes will be available to Premier customers for a fee via the Extended Hotfix Support program,” a Microsoft spokesperson told InternetNews.com in an e-mailed statement. – Stuart J.

It’s about time to move on to the next generation operating system if you haven’t done so already. Not that I am endoursing XP®, Vista®, or even Windows 7®, but if you can only stay for so long without proper support. Think about it!
