Computer makers have been told they'll no longer be able to get Windows XP OEM by the end of this year, despite consumer resistance to Vista and its compatibility problems.

By early 2008, Microsoft's contracts with computer makers will require companies to only sell Vista-loaded machines. "The OEM version of XP Professional goes next January," said Frank Luburic, senior ThinkPad product manager for Lenovo. "At that point, they'll have no choice."

Honestly, if consumers would open their eyes, they'd see what a good pice of software Vista truely is. 99.9% of the problems that currently exist are driver related.

Microsoft shouldn't need to force this onto customers.

It may be phasing out like the old game consoles, but it will remain widely used at home for video games and music buffs like m-wah.

Is the evolution of Microsoft's business model really that amusing? They're phasing out a product, so what?

It happens. At least there's still plenty of time to stick with XP until the vista bugs are sorted. I thought microsoft was going to do some extremely stupid move and phase it out this year or something.
