    That's most interesting. It means that there will be no security updates after 12/31/06 for Windows XP Home users.

    XP Home users may feel left outside alone.especially because of the fact that most PCs that are being sold nowadays, by big companies like Dell, Gateway, HP, Compaq & eMachines, have Windows XP Home pre-installed.

    I smell a petition (that will of course do nothing).

    Hmmm, I am sure that ALOT of ppl r using Windows Xp Home and that they (including myself) will be pissed off. I mean, why make it for Pro when you're not making it for Home? I'm sure there are more Home users out there than Pro users...

    This is not a good way to force ppl to use Vista M$...

    If Linux could play more good games, I'd definately be waving goodbye to Windows...
