XP is definitely approaching it's death throes.
On TechNet if you just search Operating systems or even Windows you won't find any XP versions for download -- however by actually searching for "Windows XP" explicitly you can get access to XP pro sp3 if you still need it - I'm running some XP VM's and needed to get the XP sp3 recently.
Ms tend to "hide" the product from the main menus and searches just prior to removing it.
Oddly enough Windows 3.11 is "Easier" to find !!!!.
I'd suggest if you are a TechNet subscriber and STILL have a use for XP grab it while it's still available.

Meh, I have easy access to quite a few versions of XP through DreamSpark as I am in college. I personally have no use for it. Any PC I need to fix up that can't run Windows 7/8 will just get Sabayon Linux (awesome Linux distro, IMO) put on it.

Service "windows search" is hidden. HELP! I disabled the "windows search" service in computer management and when I got back to the services TAB, the service disappeared. Is there any way to re - enable this service?
Windows 7 "N" versions up on TechNet N versions of Starter, Home Premium, Professional, Ultimate and Enterprise were put on TechNet a little while ago. These are the "Not with Media Player" versions.
The "Official" RC download for Technet/MSDN Where is all the talk about the download of the RC? Are Technet and MSDN subscribers able to download the official release of the RC? Isn't today the day? Is it any different than the leaked version?
Sorry I posted this in "news" I didn't mean to post it here. Forgive me.
