Clock is Ticking to Death of Windows XP

Tony Bradley Tony Bradley Profile: Tony Bradley

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.
