Dell: No More Windows XP Machines After Oct 22nd

Microsoft has been trying to kill off the venerable Windows XP for some time and now the October 22nd cutoff date for Windows XP is edging closer. With that in mind, Dell has released a statement to remind everybody that it will no longer ship systems with XP Professional and XP Home after the cutoff date, though Windows XP driver support will continue until December 2012. Despite the deadline, qualified customers will still be able to get hold of systems with Windows XP through Dell’s Custom Factory Integration service, though most users will probably just use Windows 7 Professional or higher to run XP applications in Windows XP Mode. Are you still very much attached to Windows XP, or have you already happily migrated to Windows 7 (or another operating system)?
