SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS)— This week marks the last day that Microsoft will offer support for its popular XP operating system. The company followed up XP with Vista, which got a fair share of bad reviews when it was introduced.
Tuesday, April 8th is the important date. If you have XP, you need to move on. Normally I don’t buy into hype, but this is not hype. Once Microsoft stops supporting XP, it becomes a sitting duck for all the malware and viruses.
Unless you intend on taking your computer offline, I definitely would not run Windows XP after this date.
