A reminder about support for certain Microsoft Operative Systems, It has been posted at the official Windows Team blog regarding support for Windows 2000, Vista RTM, and XP with Service Pack 2. The support for these three operating systems will end soon.
On April 13th, 2010, Windows Vista RTM will reach the end of support , instead for all versions of Windows 2000 and Windows XP SP2 will reach the end of support on July 13th, 2010 [Updated].
Microsoft recommends those of you still on Windows XP SP2 to install the latest service pack available via the Windows Update to install the latest service pack, Windows XP Service Pack 3 or thinking about moving to Windows 7. For Windows Vista users the suggestion is install Windows Vista Service Pack 2 (note you’ll need to install Service Pack 1 first).
