Windows XP. . .it was nice knowing you

Hardware

Author: jbrace@heartlandtechnologies.com

One of the most popular and longest lived Microsoft operating systems that we all know and love, Windows XP, has almost run its course. Microsoft has announced that they will end support for XP on April 8, 2014.

What does this mean if you have a Windows XP machine?

You will no longer be able to receive tech support from Microsoft if your computer has an issue and most retail outlets (Best Buy for example) will likely discontinue support for XP as well.

Internet & Telephone will continue to provide support on a very basic level, with no guarantees that we’ll be able to resolve issues. Without being able to reach out to Microsoft for assistance, we may not be able to solve more complex problems.

What are your options?

In order to stay with your familiar Windows platform, your options are to upgrade to Windows 7 or the newly released Windows 8.

Our recommendation is to start budgeting and planning for a change now, rather than waiting until you are no longer able to find support for your current systems. Contact Internet & Telephone today to learn about your options!
