Microsoft has decided that Windows XP should be sold for an extra five months.

Redmond has announced that it will keep selling its Windows XP operating system beyond January, in response to demand from customers.

Microsoft claims that the extension of the deadline until the end of June to give customers more time to switch to the new Windows Vista. However it is looking like many users are refusing to buy Vista.

Mike Nash, a corporate vice president for Windows product management at Microsoft said that it was too ambitious to think that we would need to make Windows XP available for only a year after the release of Windows Vista.
