The end of Windows XP :(

Tuesday, April 8, 2014
Today is 8th April.
This will be the end of an era.
An era which shall be remembered forever, as people say, but will be forgotten soon.
BYE Windows XP :(
The operating system was released to manufacturing on August 24, 2001, and generally released at for retail sale on October 25, 2001.
This was truly what represented Microsoft at that time. And it continued well for 13 years.
In 2007, when Vista came in action, XP did not fade away into darkness. It had a firm position in the world of Operating Systems. When Windows 7 was released in 2009, nothing changed, although Windows XP’s market share declined.
And then came Windows 8, and that was the time when it was announced that the support for Windows XP will end in 2014, and people realised how much they loved Windows XP.
The biggest representation of Microsoft will die soon, with more and more zero day vulnerabilities appearing, and getting attacked by hackers.
It’s really easier for the common man to get to a new OS, but many businesses are still running XP, and that’s where the problem starts.
I am not saying that you all should continue using XP, because Vintage cars are really precious, but how many of them do we see on the road?
Poorer support for newer hardware, less features as compared to new ones, and others.
Well that’s why it will become necessary for everybody to switch to Windows 7, 8 or 8.1(Hey, Windows 8.1 Update 1 is arriving soon!).
Removal of extended support for Windows XP would mean that any loopholes will no longer be patched, and could be exploited very easily.
I hope that this guide told you some things for you all to remember, and also provided a bit of nostalgia. Today, I’m gonna remove Windows XP, and instead install Ubuntu in place of it.
So now my PC contains Windows 7, 8.1, Android and Ubuntu. Happy Now.
Good Bye. Take Care :)
