end of support, MDOP 2012, Microsoft, Microsoft Desktop Optimization Pack, Windows 7, Windows XP
Granted, the expiration of support for Windows XP is not until 2014–but that is now fewer than 1000 days from now which sounds a lot sooner.
A recent Windows for Your Business blog post promotes the soon-to-be-released Microsoft Desktop Optimization Pack (MDOP) 2011 R2 as a resource to help organizations make the switch to Windows 7 before XP dies.
By 2014, I would hope that XP will be a fading memory, and that we’ll be pushing organizations to switch from Windows 7 or Windows 8 and make the switch to WIndows 9–but I guess the tenacity of Windows XP to still be a pervasive OS today suggests not.
