I think it's not a good idea to change the default before 08.04.2014 (WinXP
Professional Extended Support End Date) or even 14.07.2015 (Windows Server 2003
R2 Extended Support End Date).

According to the NetApplications (, WinXP is
currently used by 31% of the desktop internet users.

Btw, how can I override this default value?
