IE6 on SP2 ends July 13, 2010, which is 24 months after SP3 was released.
Service Pack 3 was released to manufacturers in April 2008, and to everyone else on July 10, 2008 which also reaches its end of support 24 months after release.
According to the note (emphasis mine):
Support [for Internet Explorer 6 (and interestingly, Internet Explorer 7)] ends 24 months after the next service pack releases or at the end of the product’s support lifecycle, whichever comes first.
â€¦ which if I’m connecting the dots correctly, support for IE6 SP3 also ends in July of this year.]]>
All I can see is that IE 6 will not be supported on SP 2 (!) any more (same for IE7 on SP2, btw). For an “up to date” XP with SP 3, it still says:
“Support ends 24 months after the next service pack releases or at the end of the product’s support lifecycle, whichever comes first. For more information, please see the service pack policy at http://support.microsoft.com/lifecycle/#ServicePackSupport.”
AFAIK, Microsoft has recently confirmed that IE6 will be supported for as long as XP is supported – which will be 2014 IIRC :-(((]]>
