Microsoft will stop supporting Windows XP in April 2014

Posted on: August 6th, 2013 by No Comments

Wow, the new Windows XP! Blue taskbar, green start button and the Bliss wallpaper from a Californian landscape photo. How fresh it looked after the boring gray of the previous versions when it came out – can you believe it was 12 years ago?

And in April 2014, just 8 months from now, Microsoft will finally stop supporting the operating system that is still being used on 37% of all desktop PCs in the world. This means that more than half a billion computers are still running the oldest supported Windows version, and the operating system of these computers will no longer be supported by Microsoft after next spring.

So, if you or your company is still using Windows XP on the computers, it’s time to start considering an upgrade to a newer version. If the new Modern user interface of Windows 8 is too unfamiliar for you, then you can still choose Windows 7, which is just as reliable and will be supported for many years to come.
