  • Hi.
    I see there is this: WHS V1 Date Mainstream Support 1/8/2013
    Is this means I can get support for it until that date, but able to continue to use it forever, right?

    If it's anything like Windows XP, you're probably right.

    Do you have a link to this information? I'd like to read it.

  • Does this mean no windows updates for it after this date?  That would be bad...

    If a program is useless, it must be documented.

    So, does this mean that I can still use the product forever but won't be getting supports or updates, right?

    Yes, the product is going to stop working, it will just no longer be
    supported.

  • Paul,

    Do you mean "keep working" instead of "stop working?"

    Hmm, seem to be missing a "not" in there. Thanks for the correction.

  • Cool.
    That's great.
    Maybe I should buy it and use it for XP PCs.
