Windows XP support ends

Companies and individuals who use Windows XP should consider migrating to another platform, Dave Johnson writes.

Microsoft will stop releasing updates for Windows XP in April 2014; it will still support Windows 7 and 8. Hackers will be able to use those updates to reverse engineer holes in the XP system and attack computers using XP.

With this kind of vulnerability, Micro­­soft is eager to see cus­­tomers migrate to other platforms—not just because of a revenue boost, but because unprotected PCs can serve as unwitting hosts for criminal attacks.
