Support ends for Windows XP and Office 2003 today

Windows XPIt had to happen. Originally released in 2001, Windows XP is still in use at some businesses and homes- just yesterday, I was visiting a client of ours and found the CFO’s computer was still running on XP.

12 years have passed, and Microsoft is finally pulling the plug on support for Windows XP today, April 8, 2014. What does this mean? No more security updates. No more technical support. If you are still using this version of Windows, it will still work tomorrow but you’re on your own. Unless you are the UK government and have paid Microsoft a handsome fee of $9.2 million (£5.5 million) for an additional year of support.

Office 2003 is also being retired today after 10 years of faithful service.
