Last week Microsoft announced that support for Windows XP would end on 14th April 2009 – that's the day after Easter Monday so you can spend the bank holiday weekend upgrading to Vista. However today it is being reported that the successor to Vista – Windows 7 (aka Blackcomb then Vienna) – which had initially been rumoured to
hit the market in 2010 – will now arrive in the second half of 2009. Oh joy, two upgrades in one year – or does it mean a chance to stick with XP and then jump straight to Windows 7 ?
