Regarding the warning on the Windows Whistler final page

The highlighted part of the warning below is no longer true as of last year, since Microsoft ended support for Windows POS 2009, therefore ending support for the last supported variant of Windows XP. This is in no way a request to add Windows XP, I just want to ask if it's left there on purpose or whether it needs to be updated.

    Microsoft has not yet released the rights for XP, and as of a few months ago its market share is at 3.77%.

  • Big companies can quietly pay Microsoft $$$$ to extend support specifically for that company. I have no information that all such support has stopped for XP/and the POS version.

    Well as of December 2019, it's now halved (1.29%). I don't expect that number to go extremely low within the next year.
