XP Oblivion

There are now just 6 months to go before Microsoft withdraws support for Windows XP, unless you want to pay $200 per PC (then doubling each year) - and that's only available for premier customers (ie big!)

It is estimated that there are still 500 million PCs running XP out of a global PC stock of 1.6 billion (according to Gartner) with at least 10 5000+ user organisations in the UK and US currently destined to miss the deadline with their rollout to Windows 7/8.

Six months from now, on 8 April 2014, Microsoft will stop pushing out security updates for Windows XP – and that's going to be a big deal.

Viruses, ransomware, worms, Trojans, keystroke-loggers and anything else written to hack, infect, snoop or steal from users on Windows XP on or after this date will have a far better chance of success with the lack of any Windows XP patches.

It's clear that Microsoft does not want any XP users after next April, yet many still seem oblivious to this!
