Updates end for Windows XP on 8 April 2014

Recommended Posts

I've spent an hour and a bit backing up my PC files, photos, music and e mail messages and address book ahead of Microsoft stopping updates to XP on 8 April 2014.

 

The nuisance is Windows 8 everyone says is sh*t, Windows 7 support ends for that in 2015! and Windows 9 is coming out next spring 2015.

 

This means that whilst I wouls like a new PC, it would be daft to get one now rather than wait and have Windows 9 next year, meaning my PC may be at risk in the meantime. Surely Microsoft have enough money to continue with support until Windows 9 is available.  They are dong it for corporate clients (who pay) anyway!

 

I also expect a lot of my programmes won't work on windows 8 or 9 too.

I am using MS Office 97 and Quicken 2004!

 

What is everyone with XP planning to do?
