The Most Popular OS in the world is now in the “extended support” period.

As of today (4/14/2009) Windows XP is now in the “extended support” period. I actually find it hilarious that around 67% of the worlds computers are powered by an OS in the “extended support” period. Thankfully, though, XP’ll be supported until 4/8/2014. And hopefully Linux will have either:

  • gotten better
  • or made Microsoft make “NT 5.3” (the “true” successor to XP)

Of course the Windows 95 users (you know who you are) are just as “not supported” as they were in December 2001, and don’t have to deal with the headache known as Conficker.
