While Microsoft had planned to stop selling Windows XP licenses by January 31st, the company has extended that deadline to May 30th.

Could this be because Vista is possibly buggy, hard to use, and consumes too much memory? While XP can be loaded onto these systems through a loophole whether or not Microsoft extends licenses, the platform is certainly keeping XP in the front and center of public consciousness.

It'll be interesting to see if Microsoft just continues extending XP licensing until Windows 7 comes out. I'd bet that they will. So, so long XP it was nice to know you.
