Microsoft Will End Support for Windows XP


Recommended Posts



The end is coming. Repent!


That's the message from Microsoft as it reminded consumers that its support for Windows XP SP3 and Office 2003 will end on April 8, 2014.


According to Microsoft marketing director Stella Chernyak that means the software giant will nix security updates, non-security hot-fixes and technical support after that date. So let the countdown begin. You now have less than two years to get your affairs in order and hightail it to more current software.

No offence but this is (very) old news. They announced the discontinuation of support as being 2014 several years back. This will include IE6 out of the picture too which Microsoft is looking to eliminate.


XP has been an amazing OS but good riddance. People need to move on. I believe it will end up being more cost-effective being on a more modern OS such as Windows 7/8/etc. Companies should upgrade every 3-5 years, not every 10-13.
