Windows 7: How long will XP last before it fades away ?

Well as everyone knows XP is an OLD OS, it's still decent but now that 7 is out it's going to fully replace XP eventually.

How long would you give XP ?

2 or 3 more years perhaps ?

There are still a lot of people there that love XP and do not want to move on to anything new. Of course, some of them are conspiracy theorists that think Windows 7 was created to allow Microsoft and the government spy on them.
It will be interesting to see how long MS continues to support XP, and after that, how long the holdouts will continue to use it.

microsoft has agreed to support windows xp until 2014, which i believe is more than a reasonable time for people and companies to upgrade hardware and software that only operate in xp for the time being. it's actually very generous of them to support the OS for as long as they have already.

Is MS still supporting Windows XP 64 bit ?

Just wondering, also I heard that there is no SP3 for XP 64bit, is that true as well ? Why is that anyway ?

Why is there no SP3 for XP 64bit Edition ?

I learned this today and I'm just curious, apparently XP 64bit is still on SP2. Does that mean it's less secure than 32 bit XP SP3 ?

Audio fades when recording
Hi so I have looked around but haven't found a solution to my problem. When I record audio it seems the microphone is cutting out at a certain sound level. So if I hold a note on a guitar instead of fading away to nothing about halfway through the note the sound drops out abruptly. It seems like...

Recycling a movie from my harddrive is taking long long time.
Why is this. Like 10 minutes plus and it still says recycling. It should only take a second. Is it bad to let it continue at its own pace or should I restart the PC and try it again?

OK...so this seems pretty strange...I think it might be software, but I suppose it could be hardware. After awhile and at random occurences the audio balance will unexpectedly shift to the right. The settings don't actually show the audio balance moving right, but it clearly happens. I've had...
