Microsoft extends Windows Server 2008 support by 18 months


Microsoft has extended mainstream support for Windows Server 2008 by 18 months, and again reminded customers that the still-strong Windows XP will retire in April 2014.

Windows watcher Mary Jo Foley, a blogger for ZDNet, first reported the change.

Announced in the company's newest support lifecycle newsletter, the extension was triggered by standard practices at the Redmond, Wash. developer.
