Microsoft is finally closing the book on Windows XP on April 8, 2014 as it closes down support for the aging operating system.
Despite Windows Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8 having all hit the market, there are still computers out there running around with Windows XP as the operating system. Microsoft has already carried on support for the OS launched in 2002 longer than it normally would due to the popularity of the software, but all good things must come to an end.
Microsoft reminded everyone today that only 365 days of Windows XP support remain, and after that it will be a wild frontier for those who still continue to use the software. April 8, 2014 will mark the end of extended support which means that corporations will no longer be able to pay for support and that there will be no further software patches issued.
Considering we are in the 11th year of Windows XP, you can't really blame Microsoft for finally shutting this down. It is honoring the support window from the release of SP3, and the 2014 date will mark a 12 years since the initial release.
If you're still using Windows XP, and plan to do so past the cut off date, remember you will be doing so "at your own risk."
