Microsoft Windows XP, born in 2001 (damn !!!) in October to be more specific brought a lot of innovation in the market for the time. A more attractive design close to its predecessors and even with the much-criticized Internet Explorer 6 standard, it has always been viewed with good eyes, a faster and more solid system.But everything in life has a cycle, and with "Xispzinho" would be no different, Microsoft has already announced that in April 2014 support for Windows XP will end, there will be no more security updates, and even the programs will be (already only). ) developed for newer software.The end is near It's time for you to move to a new operating system.
The end of Microsoft's support is determining a number of issues to start popping up more often in Windows XP. Security updates, for example, will no longer be available, something that could compromise your computer data.Compatibility and enhancement packages, in addition to drivers, will no longer appear. How about buying a new wireless mouse and not being able to use it? In the case of companies, these problems can be even greater because, in addition to the outdated system hindering employee productivity, the company's databases will always be at risk and security breaches.This is already public knowledge, as several researches point out that Windows 7 is proven to be safer than its older brother, as this report from Microsoft itself was able to show (Ubuntu is not even spoken of!)Once you have recovered from the major trauma of losing your Windows XP, it's time to think about which system you will use from now on.And now that I will try to give you some good options.Firstly you have to think about what your computer use is, so that it is for you to later choose your system.Some options:Windows 7:Windows 8:Mac OS: Linux Mint:Ubuntu (of course):In the square for nothing!
Well, if you're loyal to the end and don't want to leave Windows XP at all, be aware that Microsoft won't ban anyone from using the OS. If you have to reinstall the system, for example, activation will continue to function normally.Moreover, for the most optimistic, there are chances that the lack of upgrades will not make that much of a difference, at least with regard to security holes. The thought: In 2014, few malware will be developed exactly for XP. And after about 12 years of support, it is not possible that Microsoft has missed something relevant.Regarding Linux, it can be a great opportunity to leverage the system once and for all, the latest LTS versions of Ubuntu and Mint are great and Ubuntu (My distro) is definitely capable of supporting use in large corporations without leaving anything to be desired and to the home user too (why not?)
And you still use Windows XP? Do you agree with Microsoft and think it's time for him to retire or do you think the operating system still has too much fuel to burn?
