Goodbye Windows XP and Office 2003!

On April 8, 2014 Microsoft will officially end support for Windows XP and Office 2003. This means all software updates, security patches, and technical assistance will no longer be provided. Most of you will say, hey, big deal! We applaud those customers who have already adopted Windows 8.1 and Office 365. For those who haven’t, we encourage you to consider Office 365 for your business.

Also, if you take a laptop to a Microsoft Store with Windows XP on it, they will give you $100 gift card! This is a nice bonus to those customers still hanging on to an old XP machine.

msft xpFrom time to time I am seriously impressed with Microsoft’s Marketing department, this blog post today is one of those occasions. The graphic at the bottom is quite hilarious. It is amazing to see how things change so drastically in such a short time!!

If you are not on Office 365, you might find this information on Office Pro Plus useful. It will get you up to speed on all the information on how to deploy it in your organization. And here’s some more information on Office Online (formally Office Web Apps), if you missed my previous post.
