Windows XP extended support ends one year from now

The Inquirer reminds us that Microsoft's extended support for Windows XP ends in 365 days, which basically means that the then 13 year old operating system will no longer receive security updates. Consumers or companies still using Windows XP are highly advised to switch to Windows 7 or 8 asap.
Software specialist 1E has said that companies which still haven't upgraded will find it difficult to migrate in this relatively short amount of time.

According to the firm, less than a quarter of UK companies have completed the migration of their PC estate to Windows 7, with 40 percent still "in the process of upgrading".

"Organisations that are not yet off the starting blocks or only a little way down the track are highly unlikely to complete before the Microsoft deadline," 1E's CEO Sumir Karayi said.

Microsoft said last year that though it acknowledged there will be some organisations still not ready to migrate to a newer version of Windows, it would be "unnecessary for [it] to extend the support life cycle" because history has proven that organisations don't generally use it past this extended support date. We're sure there are many companies out there that would disagree.
