Businesses still using Windows XP might have to face serious problems in future, Microsoft says

Microsoft is trying hard to convince Windows XP users to upgrade to new operating systems. Microsoft seemed to be mostly concerned about the small businesses which are not stepping forward to spend on upgrading the operating systems they are working on.

It is known that Microsoft announced the ending of support for Windows XP on April 8 of this year. That means Microsoft is not going to develop any patches or release any updates even regarding security after April 8. Being the successful operating system, Windows XP had shown a significant impact on the growth of computer users in the past decade.

Despite of all the technological advancements in the evolution of the Windows operating system, there exists 21% of the computer users who are still using XP according to the survey by statcounter.

"There’s never been a better time for small businesses to upgrade their technologies to Windows 8.1 and Office 365. That’s because, as of April 8, 2014, Microsoft will no longer provide security updates for Windows XP and Office 2003, and businesses will no longer be able to receive technical support from the company." Microsoft says in press release.

Here by, the company also states the benefits of upgradation to the small businesses, "While giving customers and employees what they want is reason enough for most companies to upgrade their systems, those are just a few of the benefits that small businesses receive when they update to the latest technologies."
