The countdown for Windows XP is about to get serious. In one year, Microsoft officially stops supporting XP. What happens when the clock runs out? And how long until your current version of Windows or Office suffers the same fate?

I don't think I understand the differences between Mainstream Support and Extended Support. Who get what and how.

I'm still wondering what will happen if/when I need to reinstall XP after 2014 and how it will be activated. I need it to run some old software (Nero 6 Suite, HP PSC 1210 printer driver and toolbox, ZD Soft Screen Recorder software) and I'll be dual-booting with XP and 7 Pro for quite a few years yet.

Not like xp gets any add ons anymore. I never see any updates for my other machine with xp on it. If by support they mean talking to them when I have a issue or making newer software work on xp then i'm fine don't really care much for that. My bro is using my spare pc i gave him with xp on it and has no issues and has got no infections in over a year since I cleaned it and installed a anti virus. All he uses it for is youtube mainly and facebook,email,skype ect using firefox so not like he will miss any ie updates which they stopped a long time ago.
