Windows XP Support to Expire 8th April 2014

28th March 2013

MS XP goes end of life on 8th of April 2014. MS have announced the demise of Windows XP the much loved platform for many a business over the last ten years, and along with it MS Office 2003. So what does this mean if you are still using these applications.

Will your computer stop working ? No.

I cant ever remember calling MS for support on Windows XP or Office 2003, so why should I be bothered?

Your computer wont stop working, but all of the security updates and patches will, plus software vendors will most likely follow suite, stoping there support for these products and forcing you to upgrade any way.

The risk is that your computers become vulnerable and may be compromised by the lack of updates and patches available, in turn putting your data and productivity at risk.

Also if your computer is old enough to still be running Windows XP then there are considerable performance gains in upgrading to a newer computer, with soon to be release Windows 8.1 or the older, reliable and stable platform that is Windows 7.
