A petition to save Windows XP

InfoWorld magazine has launched a petition to force Microsoft to keep Windows XP alive. Even in tests of XP vs. Vista, conducted after Vista's service pack fixes, XP with service pack 3 ranks three times as fast as Vista with service pack 1.

Please take a few seconds to sign the petition. InfoWorld will not send your contact information to Microsoft, but the campaign hopes to force Microsoft to continue supporting Windows XP past June 2008. If they don't, users will be forced to move to Vista on any new computer, and we will have to maintain XP computers as long as possible, to forestall a technology ice age.
