Window 7 Family Pack To Replace Windows XP

Windows XP STop Sales11 Window 7 Family Pack To Replace Windows XP

As we all know, Microsoft is going to end the sales of Windows XP on October 22. Yes! Only few days left and still Windows XP is having a strong market compared to any other operating system in the world now.

This time around Microsoft is looking serious about their statement and the XP lovers should have to rush towards the outlet and get their copy. Currently by the end of September we noticed that Windows XP is still holding more than 50% for market share worldwide(according tto statcounter).

Windows XP has been available for 9 years and 2 months. The only operating system which had a long journey. The OS was originally planned to be phased out in October of 2007, but saw considerable demand due to the slow adoption of Windows Vista and the emergence of netbooks, which were not powerful enough to run Windows Vista. Eventually, XP ended up with a 98% market share of netbooks in 2008.

Microsoft slowly started moving its loyal users to Windows 7, started developing non-supportable softwares like IE9 and Windows Live. But whatever the change is, Microsoft is going to stick to its words this time and October 22nd will be the D-day for Windows XP.

Ending Windows XP will surely be big blow for Microsoft. But it is trying for a smooth transition and said that it will be bringing back the Windows 7 Family Pack on October 22 which gets users three copies of the Windows 7 Home Premium for $150 – while supplies last.

This is your chance to get up to three PCs running Windows 7 Home Premium for the low price of $149.99 ERP. But act fast—Family Pack is only available while supplies last.

Even we are confused why Microsoft is playing this game by telling “Buy before stock Ends”! Following are the list of countries where Family Pack will be available,

United States, Canada, UK, France, Germany, China, Russia, Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Czech Republic, Estonia, Greece, Hungary, Slovakia, Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, UAE, Australia, Korea, New Zealand, Singapore, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Brazil, Bulgaria, Croatia, Latvia, Lithuania, Mexico, Romania, and Ukraine.

Shockingly, Windows 7 Family Pack will not be available in India!

All this news around making everyone feel that Windows XP is surely going to die on October 22nd. But Microsoft says that it will provide support until April 8, 2014, provided you run the latest service pack and keep the software up to date (as far as those updates are available.) Windows Vista support will end in April 2014 as well.

Do you think by providing Windows 7 Family Pack will make a smooth transition? What about other countries which are not in the list? Express and share your thoughts. icon smile Window 7 Family Pack To Replace Windows XP Thanks for reading.
