Small businesses, we know you love Windows XP. It’s been good to you. But it’s 12 years old, and the time has come to start bidding it a fond farewell. The unfortunate fact is that it’s out of date and support for it will end on April 8, 2014 – less than a year from now. Are you ready?
What does end of support mean? It means no security updates. No free or paid assisted support options, and no updates to online content. Using new hardware and software will become increasingly difficult and incompatible.
But here’s the good news. The Support for Small Businesses site offers a collection of tools, guides and other information to help your business stay secure and move forward.
