 07.04.2007   Paul Thurrott: Microsoft non rilascerà il terzo Service Pack di XP
 

Paul Thurrott, news editor ed autore dell' editoriale settimanale del sito Windows IT Pro, in una parte dell'editoriale del 9 Aprile ha affermato che "La compagnia (Microsoft, ndr) ha completamente abbandonato Windows XP, e non ha assolutamente intenzione di rilasciare un XP SP3. La mia idea è che Microsoft farà la stessa cosa che fece con il Service Pack finale di Windows 2000: Affermare anni dopo che non era più necessario e rilasciare una collezione finale di security patch".

Thurrott continua dicendo: "... ma la realtà è questa, Microsoft sta' guardando avanti a nuovi incassi e non a soldi che ha già in banca...la compagnia non ha assolutamente intenzione di dare supporto a quei clienti (che continueranno ad usare Windows XP, ndr)...E questo mi fa veramente arrabbiare. E dovrebbe far arrabbiare anche voi".

And What About Windows XP Service Pack 3?

And while I'm ranting a bit, let's dredge up Windows XP Service Pack 3, which was delayed from 2005 to 2006 to 2007 and now to 2008. If you were looking for any glimpse into the mind of Microsoft, this is it: The company has completely abandoned Windows XP, and it has absolutely no plans to ever ship an XP SP3. My guess is that Microsoft will do what it did with the final Windows 2000 Service Pack: Claim years later that it's no longer needed and just ship a final security patch roll-up. This is the worst kiss-off to any Microsoft product I've ever seen, and you'd think the company would show a little more respect to its best-selling OS of all time. But the reality is, Microsoft is looking ahead to new revenue and not behind to money that's already in the bank. And though hundreds of millions of people will be running XP for years to come, despite Microsoft's best efforts at selling them a later Windows version, the company has absolutely no plans to actually support those customers. This flies in the face of its publicly-stated life cycle support plans. And it really freaks me out. It should freak you out as well.
