Wouldnít it be great if the glory days lasted forever? But reality is trophies get dusty, records are broken, and what it took to be the best ten years ago, just isnít enough for todayís standards.

Windows XP had an amazing run and millions of PC users are grateful for it. But itís time to move on. Two reasons: 1) Extended support for Windows XP is running out in less than 1000 days, and 2) thereís an OS out there thatís much better than Windows XP.
On April 8, 2014, security patches and hotfixes for all versions of Windows XP will no longer be available. So bottom line, PCís running Windows XP will be vulnerable to security threats.
