Microsoft drops support for Windows XP
After supporting Windows XP for more than 12 years Microsoft announced that they will be dropping the support for Windows XP on 8 of April 2014. After that date Windows XP users will not receive any updates through windows update and technical support from Microsoft will no longer be provided.
In addition to the above, Microsoft announced that they will also stop providing Microsoft Security Essentials for download for Windows XP users on the same date.
This is an important announcement since a Windows XP holds more than 10% of the users in the current market.
Since the upcoming security issues will no longer be fixed after the 8th of April, current Windows XP users should strongly considering moving to a newer Windows version, mainly to either Windows 7 or the Windows 8 version.
