Windows XP on its death bed

The popularity of the Windows XP OS has reached unfathomable heights during its heydays. Ever since American software giant Microsoft unveiled the latter to the public; it has become much adored by its users. The XP truly was a magnificent creation, like a marvelous sculpture done by a master artist.

Now, the beloved OS is counting its final days on personal computers the world over.

According to the company’s blog post, they reminded the world that in two years’ time, the company will no longer support the generation’s old operating system.

Stella Chrnyak, Microsoft marketing director said, “We want to acknowledge the two-year countdown to the end of Windows XP and Office 2003 support. Windows XP and Office 2003 were great software releases for their time, but the technology environment has shifted.”

The marketing director advises computer users, particularly businesses who still has XP installed in their computers, to start “migrating” machines to the latest versions of the programs well before Microsoft puts XP to rest.

The Vista which was released after the XP was a very bad replacement for the latter. People didn’t shift to Vista after finding out a lot of problems with the OS.

The dreaded date will be on April 8, 2014.
