The demise of Windows XP has been widely reported – are you affected?
There have been many articles in the press highlighting the end of Windows XP and Microsoft will be ending their support for the ageing operating system on the 8th of April this year – not long to go now!
A recent article in the respected SC Magazine states that the number of XP users in the UK is 8% of the total operating systems market, and given the amount of computers in use this is a massive number of computers. It also highlights that Microsoft is increasing the cost of support for XP machines to £120 per PC after April 8th which is another reason to migrate to a newer operating system and dispose of the now redundant computers.
