Can Windows XP survive its death sentence?

Yes, in businesses and on what Microsoft calls “ultra low cost PCs” such as the Asus Eee PC, but probably not otherwise. Microsoft boss Steve Ballmer, visiting Belgium, prompted another round of speculation last week by quipping that XP could be given a stay of execution beyond June 30. “XP will hit an end-of-life,” he said. “We have announced one. If customer feedback varies, we can always wake up smarter, but right now we have a plan for end-of-life for new XP shipments.”
