Although XP will disappear as an option for most computer buyers, the operating system will live on in several key ways.

? XP will be available on PCs from smaller computer makers known as “system builders” until January 31, 2009.

? XP will be available for so-called ultra-low-cost-PCs until June 30, 2010.

? The low-end Windows XP Starter Edition will continue to be available in emerging markets until June 30, 2010.

? Microsoft is not ending support for Windows XP. Mainstream support continues until 2009, while extended support is not due to end until April 2014.
