Windows Vista was a disaster but I'm quite happy with Windows 7. The Redmond giant worked hard on removing the most pathetic bugs from Vista. Let's hope to have a rock solid Windows 8. By the way, I'm quite happy with OSX these days. Will install Windows 8 on Mac once it's out.
Does this support include patch and security updates?

No clear information about this; but if they're going to offer support; they better be offering the security patches.
The Windows XP is a bad news for me in the office! 😔
Why Windows 7 only till 2020??? Looks kinda short... Isn't it?
