Got XP?

Two_CentsMy Two Cents, by Archie Tucker



Well, I know how customers hate the upgrade word, but after 12 years, support for Windows XP will end on April 8, 2014. After that date, Microsoft will no longer provide security updates or technical support for the Windows XP operating system.

What does this mean? It means if you have PC’s with Windows XP that have access to the outside world in any way, it’s time to replace them. Security updates patch vulnerabilities that may be exploited by malware and help keep users and their data safer. This also means that most other software companies will probably stop supporting versions of their software that run on XP.

If all of the above is not enough to make you want to upgrade, you may be required by law to update, depending on certain data privacy laws.

Also, Microsoft Office 2003 support ends on April 8, 2014.
