Enterprise Customers Support for Windows XP ends today #xp #win8 #winserv #upgrade   Leave a comment

So finally today ends the windows XP version. But will it end or are you ignoring the fact that you are running a OS that is more than 10 years old.

And still you want the latest version of your phone with the latest updates, and your tablet is also running the latest version. But your PC is Old and is holding all your email and bank accounts so no problem if the pc is full of malware or other extra software.

originalSo what to do ?  Should I turn it off or upgrade the machine or push the machine thru a shredder.

Well option 3 is the best choice. There is no upgrade path from Windows XP to Windows 7 or 8 only fresh installs are possible.

Probably your machine is at least 6 years old and there are no drivers for your machine. and the fresh install and patching will take a day.

average engineer will cost 500 euro a day so running a old machine is not the best way.

Buy a new machine directly with windows 8 or after today 8.1 Update 1 http://blogs.windows.com/windows/b/windowsexperience/archive/2014/04/02/windows-8-1-update-important-refinements-to-the-windows-experience.aspx

Or do nothing and wait for the first hacker and your machine will be joined to the largest botnet with all other XP machines Winking smile but this could be fun remember all the software hacks for Windows 95 , open your CD drive of switch the mouse buttons or send a BSOD while you are on line and chatting with me Winking smile

SO buy a new device not for yourself but for me , so that I do not get all the spam from the open internet machine collective.

Thanks for not using XP anymore.
