The following is a post from here:

and quoted:

"Microsoft is making changes to its support Web site in an attempt to clear up confusion over its plans for the consumer editions of Windows XP.

Until Tuesday night, a posting on Microsoft's Web site stated that support for Windows XP Home and Windows XP Media Center Edition would end on Dec. 31, 2006. That would mean no more security fixes or any other support items, such as warranty claims, for users of those operating system products.

But the posting was incorrect...
...consumer Windows XP editions, along with XP Professional, will be supported until two years after Vista ships".

They do this all the time with their support policy. I think they're trying to "scare" people into buying the new OS when it comes out. That's out of the question for me, have you seen what you need in hardware to run Vista?
