|Windows XP; End of support April 2014, what’s next?The end of support for Windows XP is right around the corner (April 8th 2014). With no more updates, the security implications are huge, particularly since Windows XP still has almost 30% of the desktop market.If you’re still a Win XP user, you are probably wondering what to do when support stops.
Windows XP was and still is a very popular operating system, but as it is right now, Windows XP users are already attacked 6 times more than Windows 7 Users; and this may get worse as security fixes stop coming out. This OS will become an easy target for hackers.
