Microsoft stop supporting XP by april 8 2014



Be careful Windows XP users



Are you still using Windows XP ?? 
Do you feel very much comfortable using Windows XP ??
Is your business application RUN well only with windows XP ???

what ever , Now you have to change . We are in a day  Windows XP  is  NO MORE.

Fine ... 

Okay , lets go deep into the story  ( Why ??? and How ??? it will be risky using windows XP )


Microsoft stated that they are not going to support Windows XP & Office 2003 after April 8th of 2014. So , here after we can't get any support from microsoft for XP.
Thus we can tell it as the dead line for XP windows is 8th April 2014 . We are out this date and so we need to be careful .


Why Microsoft is doing so ??? 

Microsoft has introduced a policy in 2002 which stated that its business products along with windows & Office products can have a minimum of Ten year support . As per the policy , April 8th 2014 is the last day for Windows XP and Office 2003 .


Microsoft is doing this for their business development as well . As we all know  , and based on many surveys its clear that among every 5 systems , 1 will be of windows Xp . If its so , microsoft have to continue supporting oldies for years and years even after launching many newbies ( Vista , windows 7 and windows 8 ) which is hard and even loss for them .

By this , more and most of the users will be forced to be migrated from XP to any higher / latest versions of windows .



How is it risky for windows Xp users :


Whether a Business computer or a personal computer , we always care about securing our data . For maintaining every thing secured we will always do use lot of applications along with windows up-gradations.

If you are not concentrating on your PC security  , hacking or spreading viruses became easy for spamers in this now a day Internet world.
For maintaining PC security  : Updating windows , patching , Bug fixing , getting support in all other aspects are very must . But where as after all  , we are not going have all  these from Microsoft , which can cause security risks to all Windows XP users.

As a hacker , he/she will always look for bugs in windows which can give them a chance for hacking personal / business system . Till now microsoft is working and fixing all the bugs time by time and updating. But as they are going to stop supporting windows Xp here after , No one can fix these bugs which can lead to a big security risk .

If its a business system , this may lead to a big negative impact on to the organisation. 
That is why many experts are suggesting for migration of windows xp to next level for which process has to be started now itself . ( as migration of windows will take some time )
