So what about good old Windows users? If you weren’t aware, Microsoft no longer supports Windows XP. Ok, so no big deal right? I mean you can still keep using your software? While yes you can still use the software, the big BUT is, all those little, somewhat annoying updates you used to download you will no longer receive. These included patches to secure your computer against frequent new hacker threats. Basically upgrades to your computer’s security. So if you are still on XP, you are playing Russian Roulette with increasingly more bullets; the hackers have the gun held smack against your private data!

Oh and if you think Windows XP upgrades aren’t that important in business…
