The Microsoft Support Lifecycle blog site is now live - http://blogs.technet.com/lifecycle/default.aspx.
As most IT Professionals are aware, the Microsoft Support Lifecycle is the set of policies that governs the length of support for all Microsoft products. Or, as described by the Microsoft Lifecycle website, "provides consistent and predictable guidelines for product support availability when a product releases and throughout that product’s life".
The goal of this blog is not to replace the main http://support.microsoft.com/lifecycle website as the authoritative source for information on the policy. Instead, the goal is to use this blog as an informal communication mechanism to supplement the site and answer some of the common questions.
