Anyone heard how much longer Autocad will be able to run on an XP Machine ?

2013 ? ??

Just needing to know since out IT dept. will be building  me a new laptop.

And our company is still on XP nation wide. Not Sure I can convince IT

Windows 7 is necessary (They do not know if all our apps will run on Windows 7)

Thanks

Ron

MIcrosoft plans to end support for Windows XP in April of 2014.  I would suspect that 3rd party applications will continued to be supported on the platform for a few more years.  That would coincide with the likely release of AutoCAD 2015, which will likely be the last AutoCAD to support XP, in theory.  When it is officially annouced, it will be no secret to anyone.
