XP on Life Support...Or Is It?

Dell is giving XP one more week to live, and if we're to believe some reports from credible sources, Microsoft might be thinking of extending the stay of execution for the popular operating system, too.

Well, it only makes sense, doesn't it? Look, Vista's a dud, especially in the enterprise. We can pretty much state that as fact now. So why not give customers what they want -- XP -- for now and hope that Windows 7 will fare better than Vista? Why is Microsoft so afraid to do something that might actually make customers (and, in turn, a lot of partners) happy? Maybe it isn't. We'll see.
