What risks will those who stick with Windows XP face.–PC Pitstop

The Windows operating system commands 90% and the 11 year old Windows XP holds a chunk of it. StatCounter says Windows XP market share is around 19% whereas NetApplication says it is around 29%. Both have their own methodology of calculating this. Windows XP End of Life is fast approaching. The deadline for the lifecycle support for one of the most popular operating systems, the world has ever known in about to be reached. In less than 5 months, Microsoft will cease supporting the decade old operating system, Windows XP. While there are many people who still argue that the operating system isn’t completely dead yet, there are many critically important reasons why you need to take a call now about upgrading to a newer operating system like Windows 8, or even Windows 7 at least!

Windows XP is reaching End of Support in 2014 in 5 months. According to Microsoft, Windows XP Extended Support will end on 8th April 2014.

  1. I added a ssd drive to install windows 8.1 for internet work. Off line I will tell the bios to load xp and I'm off to work with office 2000. I hate to go to win 8.1 because we have to build a new computer. Now is the time to upgrange cpu and motherboard then go to win 8.1, which I hate. I have one computer operating with dual operating systems so far but more to come Dual systems are obtained with the use of the Bois and second drive with otther system on it..

  2. I learned to love XP after being forced to give up Windows 2000. But after using Windows 7 since it came out as dual boot, XP is the ugly OS between the 2. 🙂

  3. 7 seems quite good, not sure why you feel it is a mess, 8 on the other hand??? only really good for those with a Touch screen

    I refuse to give up on as great OS like Windows XP. Microsoft got it right with that interface. Windows7,8 are ugly and overdone.
