The end of “Windows XP”

Microsoft will stop delivering security updates for the second most popular operating system in the world “Windows XP“. The company issued several blog posts urging users to upgrade to newer Windows versions before it was too late.

” NOW is the time to move to a more modern Windows operating system and modernize your IT infrastructure. “

According to metrics firm NetMarketShare, XP is second only to Windows 7 in terms of usage with 38.73 percent of the worldwide operating system market share, but what if there will still be some ( a couple of million ) using it after the END DATE ?, this will open a large door for hackers and motivate them to find more vulnerabilities and exploits inside “XP”. 

So like it or not, as the company is moving on you probably should too.
