5 reasons why it’s time to upgrade Windows XP to Windows 7
If you’re still using Windows XP, it’s about time you upgraded to Windows 7. It’s not just because Windows 7 has much more advanced features as compared to Windows XP. It has also become quite important to upgrade to Windows 7 as the official Microsoft support for Windows XP (Service Pack 3) ends on April 8, 2014.
What this implies is that after the end of support date, Microsoft won’t offer updates, security patches, and online assistance for Windows XP. Without any security updates, Windows XP computers could become vulnerable to malicious threats. If you’re worried about the compatibility of Windows XP programs, there’s Windows XP Mode in Windows 7 for running applications that are not supported by Windows 7. What’s more, Windows 7 comes with several performance enhancements, new tools, and improved security.
