As April 8th is just four weeks away, Microsoft reminds of Windows XP end of support:
“Microsoft has provided support for
Windows XP for the past 12 years. But now the time has come for us, along with our hardware and software partners, to invest our resources toward supporting more recent technologies so that we can continue to deliver great new experiences.”
April 8, 2014 would mark the day for Windows XP tech support end of life. Not only it includes end of helpdesk support, but also automatic updates that help protect your PC. Microsoft will also stop providing Microsoft Security Essentials for download on Windows XP on this date.
If you continue to use Windows XP after support ends, your computer will still work but it might become more vulnerable to security risks and viruses, and you will be experiencing a greater numbers of apps and devices that do not work with Windows XP.
