I have a friend with an old 32-bit toshiba laptop with Windows XP Home Edition. She is going to wipe it clean and reinstall using the disk provided with the computer and then upgrade to Service Pack 3. She said that someone told her that Microsoft was no longer supporting Win XP SP 3 and that she wouldn't be able to update to that.

Afaict, that's not true:

Just want to confirm ... she should be able to get SP3, yes?
