MajorGeeks is mistaken. April 8th will have updates for XP, if there are any to be had.

Q: When will be the last day Microsoft provide updates for Office 2003 and Windows XP? Will April 8, 2014 be the last time we receive updates unless we purchase extended support?

A: The April 8th bulletin release would include security updates for Office 2003 and Windows XP, should there be any vulnerabilities that affect these products. Microsoft will stop providing Office 2003 and Windows XP Security updates only after the April Security bulletin release.

I personally don't think XP is going away anytime soon:

Support for XP to continue in China

XP may still receive patches after April if tomasz86's prediction proves correct.

@JodyThornton Microsoft will produce Windows XP updates for much longer than April 2014. The last official updates for Windows 2000 were released last year, 3 years after EOL, and were distributed inside the monthly security ISO update packages. Apart from that, a few more non-public official updates were leaked.

In case of Windows XP I'd expect at least regular official updates until July 2015 (when Windows 2003 is becoming EOL). After April you should definitely check the monthly ISOs available under this link:

Security updates are available on ISO-9660 DVD5 image files from the Microsoft Download Center

Just keep in mind that Microsoft will not mention the existence of those updates in their official news channels. As in case of Windows 2000, the updates can be found inside those ISO packages even though Windows 2000's name itself isn't listed there at all.

More than that, due to the fact that Windows XP is much more popular than Windows 2000, I'm 99% sure that a lot of non-public updates will be leaked as well.
