Windows XP: Get. Out.   Leave a comment

xp-end-of-lifeIf you still run Windows XP on your computers for home or work … you need a new operating system. Now.

Microsoft no longer supports the software … which means there is no longer any development to improve the operating system. That might seem like no big deal when your computer is working just fine … but that will change.

The next time you buy a new printer … the driver may not be compatible.

And last week, a new security breach was found in the operating system. If you use Internet Explorer (like 56% of the world), and you use XP … the right hacker can get into your system. And what is Microsoft doing about it?

Nothing.

If you use XP, you need a new computer. Not only is the hardware aging, Microsoft has already left the software for dead.

I know one thing about your computer: some day it will die. Now, I know something about your XP computer: it is less secure today than it was a week ago. And it will never get better.
