the company said it would extend the aged operating system's lifespan in the post-Windows 7 world to as late as April 2011.
"The new policy is 18 months or SP1 [[of Windows 7]] delivery, whichever is sooner," he said.

As per its lifecycle policy, Microsoft will officially retire Windows XP, halting all patch development, including security updates, in April 2014.
