Microsoft's Campaign Pushes Users to Quit Windows XP


Microsoft's executives have been trying to convince users of Windows XP operating system to migrate to Windows 7.

In a recent blogpost, Microsoft's Erwin Visser announced that in about 1,000 days Microsoft will stop providing security updates for the OS. XP's extended support period ends on April 8, 2014, and Redmond is using the countdown milestone as an excuse to trumpet the benefits of Windows 7.

"Windows XP served us well, but in the ten years since it launched, the world has changed," Visser said. "It?s time to retire Windows XP and move to Windows 7 to take advantage of the last decade of innovation in areas such as security, performance and more natural, intuitive interface."

Microsoft is also offering tools for its customers in order to seamlessly move to Windows 7. The Microsoft Desktop Optimization Pack (MDOP) 2011 R2 will be generally available for download in August with several updates included. MDOP, along with other tools like the Microsoft Deployment Toolkit (MDT) are resources that the company updates regularly in order to offer the latest tools possible to help its customers deploy Windows 7.

In addition, as of July 12th, Windows Vista Service Pack 1 was no longer supported by Microsoft. Windows Vista users can use Windows Update to update their PC to the latest service pack available which is Service Pack 2 (SP2).
