I never thought I would be thanking big business for doing me a favour. But there you are, I agree that that is almost certainly why M$ has backed off.

The reason, of course, is that XP does not support a lot of unique legacy hardware. Much of which is still well within its expected lifespan.

May have something to do with the delayed release of Longhorn!.

just found a similar article on rival magazine website, it's good news for any like me who can't afford or doesn't want XP

Thanks for that Topcat. Better than an AVG update. (Another one out today)
