Windows XP is put to rest!
Windows in now up to Windows 8.1 version and it seems that Microsoft had to cut their costs somewhere. Support for the many versions of the same software were probably hurting the business, with Windows XP costing them several times as much to support as the newer versions.
What does this means for current Windows XP users? It means that there won’t be any security updates or bug fixes. This also means that antivirus software will become more and more impractical as the basic programming will not support any new technology. You probably won’t even be able to download Windows XP from Microsoft’s online store or receive service packs if you try to reinstall.
If the lack of Windows XP support is a problem for you, you’re not alone. A large number of people are still using Windows XP. Windows 7 sits at the top, as Windows 8.1 is gaining almost no momentum, meaning that Windows XP is still the second most used Microsoft operating system in the world.
It remains to be seen whether or not Microsoft will extend its deadline for Windows XP support in order to give the rest of the world more time to switch over. For now, you might want to consider taking up Microsoft’s offer to upgrade to Windows 8.1 for a $100 gift card.
