Microsoft will be ending their support of Windows XP one year from now, forcing users to either upgrade to Windows 7 or 8. This means no more patches and no more security fixes or updates.
Given that XP is not exactly famous for its security, this represents a significant risk which needs to be resolved by migrating to another OS.
A current pie chart above by Net Market Share highlights Windows 7 with the highest share (45%) and XP (39%) following in second.
So prevent a security breach before the time is up as it is a mandatory requirement to have secure data under the seventh principle of the Data Protection Act.
Having said this we can expect a rise in profits for software sales and migration services.
We hope this was useful…
