OK, so it's starting to appear that support for XP SP3 may go through to 2015.
Why?
OLD Drivers, OLD Printers, applications that only run 32bit with the HAL.
Most of this can be done through the built in Win7 VM capability, but not all... so your legacy apps will run a little slower on hardware that is 2-4 generations newer, but the rest will run fine.
So, what's the biggest rub?
Domain integration. Having to convert untold numbers of users to a new Domain Model! Pretty much the same thing that is keeping IP6 out of the mainstream HOW MANY YEARS LATER!!!!!

This is a half assed argument.

Ha! IPv6 ... how quaint. I've considering running it on my LAN, just fors**ts.

It's not like I'm going to run out of IPs for my LAN devices in the IPv4 private address space, but I figure ... why not?

:P

I tried IPv6 on my internal network in hybrid mode.
My blender and toaster had an address conflict.
I turned them both on and let them resolve their issues.
The blender got mixed up and the toaster won in a dead heat.....
