XP's "Mainstream Support" Lifetime Ends at an Elderly Seven

According to Computerworld, Microsoft's mainstream support for XP, which ended in April 2009, lasted seven years. "Mainstream support" refers to non-security updates, which are provided free for Microsoft products under mainstream support. Security updates will continue to be offered by the Company until 2014, according to the authors.

The story includes a link to a July 2007 [sic] Computerworld article, "How to make Windows XP last for the next seven years."
