Microsoft to drop Windows XP SP2 support

Microsoft has just sent out another reminder to its dear customers that the end date for support for Windows XP Service Pack 2 is looming, alongside other versions of the Windows operating system as well. Support for Windows XP SP2, Windows 2000 Server and Windows 2000 Client will officially end on July 13, 2010, and this reminder comes with a marketing twist as it reminds users to upgrade their systems to Windows 7, Windows Server 2003 or Windows Server 2008 by the stated cutoff date. Bear in mind that upgrades directly from Windows 2000 to Windows 7 are not officially supported, meaning if you fall under the Windows 2000 category, you will first need to make the jump to Windows XP before migrating to Windows 7, leaving Bill Gates laughing all the way to the bank.
