Steve Ballmer is reported to suggest Microsoft’s Windows XP’s life may be extended beyond the planned termination of sales and some support soon.
To be honest, it feels like a lot of spin by Microsoft. Ballmer is quoted as saying:
“If customer feedback varies, we can always wake up smarter”
If this is the source of media speculation XP may be extended, they’re being rather hopeful, as it’s so vague as to be nonsensical.
Ballmer does seem to be continuing the spin with other comments in that report.
But Ballmer was adamant that “most people who buy PCs today buy them with Vista.”
