    I'm looking for the latest official or unofficial dates for XP sunset. Can anyone help?

    Product support from Microsoft?
    Availability of retail licenses?
    Availability of OEM licenses?

    Search through the appropriate forum, I believe this has previously been discussed.

    See Microsoft Support Lifecycle for XP support. XP SP-3 is in extended support. See Help and Support for a chart that show the difference between mainstream and extended suppport.

    Not sure about license availability. See Windows 7 SP1 means end of XP downgrade rights - Computerworld for additional information.
