Can't see what the fuss is about


Microsoft
has responded to a petition requesting that it not discontinue OEM and packaged sales of Windows XP at the end of June.

The petition on Infoworld's Save XP site has been signed by more than 75,000 people. However, an official response from Microsoft indicates that it will ignore it.

A spokesperson said that Redmond was listening first and foremost to feedback from partners and customers about what makes sense based on their needs. It was this information that resulted in extending XP's life in the first place. He added that XP will not disappear completely from the worldwide market place after the June cutoff.

System builders will be able to sell XP through January 2009 as they cater to the small business markets. In emerging markets where XP Starter Edition is sold, it will still be available through June 30th, 2010.
