or straight from the horse's mouth:

Note that consumers only get 5 years of support from the 
product's RELEASE (*not* when you buy it).

This really pisses me off as I got a new copy of XP home
with a new computer less than two years ago.  Having my
OS go obsolete for security updates less than three years
after I got it is completely unacceptable.
