AFAIK we can still support Win XP because technichal changes hadn't any 
influence until now. When there is a good reason to build with an 
updated SDK then loosing support for Win XP shouldn't be a problem IMHO.

Microsoft has stopped its support on any level on April, 2014. So, when 
parts of OpenOffice wouldn't run like before, then it's acceptable. And 
when OpenOffice wouldn't run or install at all, then so be it.

My 2 ct.

Yes, here and there I see some mails from Apache members regarding "How 
can I get access to MSDN?" but I haven't followed this. So, at the 
moment I cannot tell you what to do.
