Support for early editions of
Windows XP and Vista ending soon
Microsoft is reminding users that support for several editions of Windows will end beginning in just two weeks time. It will mean no more security updates, though users can easily switch to supported editions from Microsoft's website without charge.
The affected editions are Windows XP with the second service pack (SP2) and Vista with no service pack applied. Vista support will end on April 13, 2010, while for XP SP2 and Windows 2000 maintenance and support will conclude on July 13, 2010. After that, people running the relevant editions will no longer be able to get monthly updates from Microsoft.
