The end is approaching for Windows XP… in 2014. The already decade-old operating system is still the main base for much of the world's PCs, despite Microsoft's efforts to hold those users away from Internet Explorer 9 (though the latest Firefox and Chrome work just fine) and the other latest Microsoft software.

In its latest push, Microsoft has made and published "Windows XP End of Support Countdown Gadget" – essentially a desktop gadget with a countdown clock until the classic OS is no longer supported.

Microsoft gives it the following overview: "Looking to get off Windows XP? Use this handy gadget to count down the number of days until Windows XP End of Support (EOS) in 2014."

The desktop gadget, however, is only supported by Windows Vista and Windows 7, which makes it somewhat puzzling as such users have obviously eradicated Windows XP from that particular system.

Still, it's a good daily reminder of just how many days left until Windows XP is off the map. Download it from Microsoft here.

I lol'd. I'm happy XP will still be supported for a couple more years, though. I still use it on a couple machines in my home.
