Not quite so. Couldn't open your link, but this one is more official -
So, April 8, 2014 still stays as the final day of support for Windows XP -
after that date there won't be any security updates, patches or hotfixes for
the system vulnerabilities. July 14, 2015 is the final date for Microsoft
Security Essentials antimalware software updates.
I wouldn't be so optimistic for using and supporting Windows XP after April
8, as any 0-day security issue probably won't be fixed by MS.
Best regards.
