Overview:

 


Many companies are still using Windows XP and seem happy with it, but Windows XP - while being excellent for the job it was developed for – is no longer fit for purpose.


 


The operating system came to market in 2001, based on developments that had been going on since Windows NT 4.0 came to market in 1996, itself based on previous NT code from 1993.


 


Windows 7 is what Windows Vista should have been and Windows XP should no longer be accepted as a suitable desktop for today’s business needs.


 


Microsoft ends support for Windows XP in 2014, so those businesses that haven’t already done so need to start migration plans this year to leave enough time to test and roll out desktops.
