INFOWORLD has launched a petition to save Windows XP – basedon the news that the Vole will stop OEM and shrink wrapped sales of XP the endof June.
According to the site, lots of people don’t want to move to a shiny newplace, but would prefer to relax in the comfy couch of Microsoft’s lastoperating system.
It is a fact that Microsoft has a record of getting one OS right and the nextone wrong – as examples, DOS 5*, Windows for Warehouses and Windows Me Me Me.
The campaign startshere

That's exactly the conclusion people have come to with Vista. Formost of us, there's really no reason to move to it -- yet we don't havea choice. When that strong desire to stick with XP became obvious inspring 2007, major computer makers such as Dell and Hewlett-Packardquietly reintroduced new XP-based systems (but just to businesscustomers, so as not to offend Microsoft). Come June 30, however, eventhat option goes away.
So what to do? Let Microsoft decide where your personal andenterprise software "lives"? Or send a loud and clear message that youdon't want to move?
We're going for the loud-and-clear option. Join us, and tellMicrosoft that you want to keep XP available indefinitely. Not foranother six months or a year but indefinitely.
And ask your friends and colleagues to join in, too. Just point them to SaveXP.comfor a quick link to this page. And if you'd like to publish ourcountdown animation on your Web site to help promote this petition,e-mail Executive Editor Galen Gruman for the code snippet.
