XP Pro (all XP's in fact) are being PULLED from the shelves!!!!

Recommended Posts

I wanted to get another copy for my son, and just called the store where I purchased my copy early this morning.I was STUNNED to find out that they have been given a call to totally ***REMOVE*** ALL COPIES OF THE XP OPERATING SYSTEM AND TO BE SHIPPED BACK TO MICROSOFT. The space is only to be for Vista.If ANYBODY wants to grab a copy, I suggest you make a move immediately from off a web site, or local store.MS this time is shoving Vista down the throat. Obviously, they are scared that it will be a bomb like ME.If you want one (any edition of XP), you'd better act fast. Nobody told me at the store they were removing their stock off of the shelf. I must have just grabbed my copy before they got around to it, or before they were ordered by MS to do so.Sesquash

get a wife of your own choosing when everybody in the families will be perfectly happy with the one they chose for you? You'll see, with time you'll be happy too. This whole autonomy and freedom thing is vastly over-rated.

Software distribution agreements always guarantee free upgrades to the latest version for all product that distributors have in stock.The distributors insist on this so that they are not left holding out-of-date stock.Microsoft probably does not want it all back, but they are obliged to take it and exchange it for the latest version.So, this is most likely just normal procedure at the end of the product cycle for all Microsoft products. Nothing to get alarmed about.There will always be many discount distributors who will have XP in a dusty warehouse for many years to come.Best regards.Luis

Why rush to buy XP now?!?!?! They may be pulled from major retailers shelves right now.... but those have to go somewhere don't they?Wait a few months... once people start getting Vista, you will see XP prices drop dramatically on web sites and discount computer stores.... #### I even heard that McDonalds are going to give some away in their happy meals.

If MS really requested XP stock returned, it's because they want to have Vista only on the shelves, but I highly doubt they would do that until maybe the middle of next year. There still is a market for it and the full version is like $289, why would they shut off that revenue early? You're just trying to start panic, or are gullible to a joke the guy at the store had at your expense. Take a minute and think about it.
