评论WindowsXP能撑到2020年为媒体误读

发布时间:2019-03-12 04:07:25 阅读: 来源:铝丝网厂家

有媒体传出Windows XP可撑到2020年,但实际可能是搞错了。笔者仔细查证了一下微软的原始文章,并向微软官方作了查证,以下是简单说明。消息出处ComputerWorld基本上是计算毛病,致使会有毛病的结论。没错,微软是把WindowsXP降级权延长了,不过你在2020年是不可能买到有Windows XP降级权的电脑的,事实上,XP可能在2015年就会完全从销售渠道消失。

且看微软原始博客的说明(用了许多法律用语,很容易把大家弄混):To support our customers’ “unprecedented move” to migrate their PC environment to Windows 7, we have decided to extend downgrade rights to Windows XP Professional beyond the previously planned end date at Windows 7 SP1. This will help maintain consistency for downgrade rights throughout the Windows 7 lifecycle. As a result, the OEM versions of Windows 7 Professional and Windows 7 Ultimate will continue to include downgrade rights to the similar versions of Windows Vista or Windows XP Professional. Going forward, businesses can continue to purchase new PCs and篠原 utilize end user downgrade rights to Windows XP or Windows Vista until they are ready to use Windows 7. Enabling such rights throughout the Windows 7 lifecycle will make it easier for customers as they plan deployments to Windows the interest of providing more consistency and predictability傅程鹏 with how we manage the Windows lifecycle, we are confirming our current policy of allowing retailers to sell the boxed version of the previous OS for up to 1 year after release of a new OS, and that OEMs can sell PCs with the previous OS pre-loaded for up to 2 years after, the launch date of the new OS. This means that since Windows 7 launched on October 22, 2009, retailers will be able to sell the boxed version of Windows V东琴乃番号ista until October 22, 2010, and OEMs will be able to sell PCs with Windows Vista preinstalled until October 22, 2011. I also recommend checking out this blog postregarding Windows XP end-of-sales and end-of-support deadlines。这里许多媒体把技术支持生命周期(technical support lifecycle)与销售周期弄混了(sales lifecycle)。微软的技术支持周期有五年主流支持(所有Windows版本),和5年额外延伸支持(只针对商业版Windows),也因此,没错,Windows 7在2019年还有官方支持的安全更新与漏洞修补。但这里有个更重要的支持日期:2014年4月。Windows XP SP3 在这个时候将结束支持,微软不会再继续提供安全补丁。因此企业若在2014年4月以后才通过降级权来部署Windows XP的话,你等于部署了一个没法取得支持的操作系统,因此你若真的履行了这些降级权,你就只能靠自己,很荣幸吧你!?请记得,降级权仅适用于你购买新机所搭配的OEM授权(需Windows商业版,Professional或Ultimate)。OEM版会在下1版Windows发布后两年停售(盒装版则是一年后)。若微软够准时的话,照理Windows 8应该是在2012年10月推出。两年后的2014年底,微软就不准OEM再继续卖Windows 7。客户可买Windows 8,降级至前两个版本:Windows 7与Windows Vista,但没法降级至XP。固然,微软有可能不会准时出货,如此XP又多了一点时间;也或届时微软又延长了XP支持也说不定,只是延长时间也不会太多,比较公道的是延伸 XP 支持时间从2014年4月至当年底(配合OEM版的降级权),但总之早晚这扇门还是要关的。既有Windows XP版本不会过期,但OEM与大量授权版本都是随着当初搭售的硬件,没法转移至新系统。因此在2015年底,你已经不可能买到任何有XP降级权的 Windows版本了,届时也是XP消失之时。文/CNET
