Today is history especially for those who are still using Window XP programs. For sure all those who are still using a computer or laptops with these programs are not happy about it. I am one of them. I still have a desktop who has a Windows XP Service pack 1 and a netbook with Service Pack 3. I was saddened when I read this news in a local newspapers. The past days and even today, April 8, 2014, I also heard the news over the radio that the support on Windows XP is already ending.
Windows XP is one of my favorite programs. I still have some laptops with Windows Vista and Windows 7 program. Now, I am using Windows 8. To be honest, I love especially the Windows XP and Windows 7 programs. They are very user friendly compared to Windows 8. I guess, I need more time to be very familiar with my new notebook. I just wish I am computer geek but I am not really. At least, I now some things about computers.
Here is the press release of Microsoft about it,
“Microsoft provided support for Windows XP for the past 12 years. But the time came 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.
As a result, technical assistance for Windows XP is no longer available, including automatic updates that help protect your PC. Microsoft has also stopped providing Microsoft Security Essentials for download on Windows XP. (If you already have Microsoft Security Essentials installed, you will continue to receive antimalware signature updates for a limited time, but this does not mean that your PC is secure because Microsoft is no longer providing security updates to help protect your PC.)” Red more here.
