No more long wait. After Windows XP service pack 3 has reached RTM at beginning of this month, now you can get it via direct download or WU. Though I am using Windows Vista for my machine, my company laptop and virtual environment are still using Windows XP. It's quite stable after service pack 2. And it's hard to change to the new environment when you already familiar with existing one. For Direct OEM and Retail License Availability, the support end date is June 30, 2008. Yes, 2 more months. Let's see will support of Windows XP be extended by Microsoft.
