    Microsoft has given another lease of life to Windows XP only days before
    PC makers have to stop selling it.

    Windows XP reaches its end of life on 30 June but Microsoft has now said
    it can continue being sold until June 2010 but only on cheap desktops.

    The decision follows one made in April to extend the life of XP on low
    cost laptops until the same date.

    It comes as Dell, HP and Lenovo exploit loopholes in Microsoft's
    licensing terms to keep putting XP on machines.

    I think MICRO$~1 is selling themselves short - he should throw some
    programmers at writing some Doze eye candy on top of a linux kernel.

    Imagine the ads: "Microsoft Linux! We've FINALLY fixed all of those
    pesky security holes! Only FORTY DOLLARS!"

    I saw a mac ad where they really trashed Vista: The mac guy is just
    a guy, the MS team are a bunch of suits, and one MS guy says, "I've
    been running for a whole week without a problem. I've been running for a
    whole week without a problem. I've been running for a whole week without
    a problem. I've been running for a whole week without a problem. ..."
