Microsoft Ending Support for XP, Vista Variants


Why Is Microsoft Always One Step Behind? Would You Buy a Courier?

,----[ Quote ]
| Microsoft is a well known brand, but why do 
| they always seem to be adding products right 
| after another, *cough* Apple *cough*, company 
| has already released something new?  As 
| reported in PC World, the Microsoft Courier 
| doesnât really seem to be anything that is 
| actually in the making, BUT Engadget reports 
| on some key points that sure as heck seem 
| like a real product.



Microsoft unplugs middling Windows server

,----[ Quote ]
| Microsoft will halt development of its
| mid-market oriented Windows Essential
| Business Server software bundle, as the
| company bets on "cloud computing" rather
| than lump licensing to woo penny-pinching
| IT markets.


Microsoft Kills Windows Essential Business Server

| Microsoft will discontinue future
| development of Windows Essential Business
| Server (EBS), effective June 30th, 2010.


Microsoft Kicks Midmarket Server Off The Team

,----[ Quote ]
| Microsoft launched EBS in November 2008 in
| part to give VARs a product to sell to
| customers whose needs exceeded the 75-user
| limit of Small Business Server, and
| potentially attract new midmarket
| customers. With support for up to 300
| users, EBS filled a gap that had existed
| in Microsoft's SMB product portfolio, but
| EBS apparently wasn't seeing a
| satisfactory level of uptake.

'Hero' goes down: Microsoft cutbacks spell the end of Essential Business Server

,----[ Quote ]
| It was a solid idea. But today it was left
| to EBS' own product managers to announce
| on their team blog this morning that
| Microsoft has made a decision to cancel
| the product. The excuse they gave was
| especially disheartening, as it
| essentially caved in to the arguments
| naysayers used against EBS' viability from
| the beginning.

TechMan: Microsoft slates an end to support for some products

,----[ Quote ]
| Microsoft announced two dates recently
| that Windows users should heed.
| On April 13, Microsoft will no longer
| support Windows Vista that has no service
| packs installed.
| Second and more importantly, on July 13,
| support will end for all versions of
| Windows 2000 and all version of Windows XP
| with Service Pack 1 and Service Pack 2.
| End of support means that Microsoft will
| no longer give phone and e-mail technical
| support and will no longer fix bugs and
| issue security patches.
