There are more folks required to keep XP alive besides Microsoft. Flash, Java, device drivers from device manufacturers, Browser developers, to name a few. Since this support is predominantly free, where does the revenue come from to support it.

I think they will get into deep trouble with the Fortune 500 if they really drop dead on XP. We'll see.

Should a company that profits from the innate good of its creations also be held accountable for the innate bad of its creations and for how long ??

Rick, i say yes because look what happened to Windows Me that was a nightmare waiting to happen. Any company should back up their own product no matter how many updates or upgrades they offer. The question is how many people do you think would run out and buy software upgrades with out some kind of a support system in place and that includes XP yes the OS is old and out of date but it's like buying a old chevy or a Cadillac do you think each consumer will stop looking for parts or support for them? In this case i think M$ should offer it down the line from 95 on up but, that's just me.
