Support for the ever popular Windows XP operating system is coming to an end.
This means that Microsoft will not be providing security updates to computers running XP, nor will it be providing further updates to Windows Essentials (anti-virus), for those who are still using it with XP.
Anyone still using Windows XP should either get a new computer, or upgrade to Windows 7 – at a minimum. Failure to do so will leave your computer at risk for all kinds of nastiness that the internet has to offer.
Considering that XP still has a 29% market share, this is bound to catch a lot of people off guard. Unfortunately, Microsoft will do what they want to do. Nothing lasts forever.
