Microsfoft discontinues bundling of XP and is the anniversary of Windows 7

By Elihu5991

 Microsoft marked another near final milestone for its 9-year-old Windows XP operating system this week.
Windows XP can no longer be bundled on new PCs and it's also the first anniversary of the release of Windows 7.

Good news for us, support for Windows XP SP3 will continue until 2014.

Dell, in fact, quit taking orders for PCs pre-installed with XP in early September in order to make sure that all last minute orders were shipped by the cutoff date.  You can still downgrade though but you'll have to do it before the scheduled release in the first half of 2011 when the Windows 7 Service Pack 1 (SP1) is released.  >>>The cutoff for getting XP downgrades on new systems had been set to the delivery date of Windows 7 Service Pack 1 (SP1), which is currently scheduled for release in the first half of 2011.
