Neowin.net reports that Microsoft is now logging calls from users requesting a life extension for Windows XP. If you want to see Windows XP live on, US users should call (866)234-6020 (see the article for more numbers). Remember, your call must concern extending the life of Windows XP. If you also have a different problem, call back later.
