hmm, i wonder if that means the activation servers for windows xp will also be terminated
hopefully it doesn't mean existing copies of windows xp will cease to exist or new installs of XP can't happen for hardware that doesn't support windows 7

I wonder how many people it would be with those that just bought it rather then those who buy a computer with Win7 preinstalled.
