Microsoft Ending Support for Windows XP April 8th

Windows XP End of SupportMicrosoft ended support for Windows XP on April 8th. If you have an older computer it is time to move on to newer and better technologies.

After April 8th, Microsoft will no longer publish any security updates for the 12 year old operating system, and they will no longer support the development of software from third parties.  There will be little to no new software developed by any manufacturer for Windows XP, and computers with this OS will become increasingly vulnerable to security risks, viruses, and hacker exploits.

On the positive side, upgrading to the latest versions of Windows and Office provide a productivity boost. As always, we are here to help you with the transition.  We are actively and efficently rolling out zippy new computers to our clients.

When it comes to portable tablet computing, we find that the best platform is Windows 8.
Unlike an Apple tablet, many Windows tablets include a fully featured Windows 8 operating system. This means you not only have access to apps, but it is also a full computer that can run anything from Microsoft Outlook and Word to any USB printer or external hard drive.

Here’s a video that shows the quick difference:
