Support for Windows XP SP1 is ending.

Important: If you are running Windows XP Service Pack 1, or, for that matter, anything earlier than Windows XP SP2, you should upgrade immediately. Microsoft’s support for XP SP1 is ending by mid-October.

Microsoft just can’t keep patching older revs of its OS with all the security and bug fixes that are happening these days. As much as I like Windows 2000 (it’s like Win XP lite – no frilly look and feel), for example, I can no longer recommend that users run anything but Windows XP SP2, mostly for security reasons.

Here is Microsoft’s official notice.
