Windows 7 has been a big hit for Microsoft, although it wasn't too hard to improve upon the bad reputation that its Windows Vista predecessor received. On top of that, Microsoft has earned a lot of kudos for the preview builds of it next operating system, Windows 8.

So why are we still talking about Windows XP? Despite being released a decade ago, a lot of companies are still running the operating system. Many businesses were so soured on Windows Vista that they decided to stick with XP. Even Windows 7 wasn't enough to get many businesses to upgrade (be it the issue of cost, or the issue compatibility with legacy programs).


It also didn't help that Microsoft decided to break its own rule of ending support for its operating systems after ten years for Windows XP -- the company extended support for the operating system until 2014. By that time, Garner expects that 75 percent of corporate PCs will be 64-bit capable.


Now, Microsoft is telling businesses that the party is over and it's time to start working on a replacement plan. "So for all those companies that have the old products that haven't quite started the refresh, guess what? This has been a great product, XP has been a wonderful product; great TCO has been given," said Microsoft COO Kevin Turner. "It's now time for it to go."


Windows XP won't be getting another stay of execution. "We're basically giving it a time of death stamp," Turner added.
Perhaps businesses still running XP should see about downloading a copy of the Windows 8 Developer Preview and prepare for the future

Uko sahihi mkuu
Naona microsoft wameshakusanya pesa utoa kwa end user sasa wanataa kukusanya pesa za upgrage kutoka kwenye makampuni. makampunina ofisi nyingi hasa za za huko mbele hawafanyi upgrade tu kwa kuwa imetoka . Sasa naona Microsoft wanata kusawazisha kutunisha balance sheet zao ili wenye makapuni na ofisi zifnye upgrade

Tunakoelekea P3 ni kujiongezea matatizo. Kwa vile nilivyoiona Windows 8 Developer Preview Naona jamaa wameamua kukata mzizi wa fitina.
