Its gone end-of-life, apart from on NetBooks and Windows 7 downgrade
options to XP.
Really, I think we should only support Windows 7. XP is old, ugly, has a
million bugs and plenty of security issues. Vista was just a big old
mistake in its earliest versions. In its latest versions, it is actually
quite ok on the right hardware. Windows 7 will easily beat XP and Vista
in my experience in performance (even on 3-4 year old hardware with
reasonable spec) and usability, as well as security.
