Microsoft recently announced the retirement of their ancient baby Windows XP as users have steadily decreased through the years, leaving them no option than to “invest their resources towards supporting more recent technologies so that they can continue to deliver great new experiences.” As this may come as no surprise, taking into consideration that the XP version has been running for over 12 years now, people are still finding it difficult in their heart to let go, but who wouldn’t? That default memorable wallpaper of the blue sky glancing down on the rolling green hills – a classic!
With that being said, there will be no more further updates or technical assistance for the Windows XP – and thats including automatic updates to help protect your PC, so a piece of advice; move on! There are way better programs and software updates you can take advantage of, consider it a “rebound program” in order for you to progress, because eventually, you have to. As a matter of fact, Microsoft encourages you to try out the new Windows 8.1 – with more ” exciting new ways to use your PC. It’s fast, fluid, intuitive, and designed to let you do what you want, the way you want” – talk about persuasive linguistics, almost makes me forget about XPs “old-fashioned” interior, not to mention exterior.
So lets face, life goes on – leaving the old behind in order to let the new in, welcoming more innovative and exciting technology that makes life just that much more productive and better.
