SUS: deadline extended - XP SP1 not supported anymore
According to the Microsoft msrc blog, Microsoft has extended the lifetime of SUS till Tuesday July 10th, 2007. So those of you not having completed deploying WSUS to replace their SUS have a few more months time.

That said, please also not that this month the SUS service will be lacking the MS06-071 patch for a little while as it wasn't finished on time.

If you read this month's microsoft security bulletins, do note that Windows XP SP1 is now not supported anymore. That means you do not get security updates and will not be warned of security issues either. So if you use Windows XP, you do not have much choice avoiding the upgrade to SP2.
