Is It Time To Update Your Business Operating Systems?
According to a recent article from The Guardian, the 13-year-old Windows XP is still the business operating system of choice for more than a quarter of the businesses in the world, as well as 10 percent of the large organisations and a lot of government agencies worldwide as well. Some better known XP users include ATM machines, utility companies, retailers and hospitals. After all this time, it remains the second-most popular operating system.
Having so much of the world using a 13 year old operating system comes with problems, the article stated. The system is vulnerable to hackers, and Microsoft recently released its final free security patch for Windows XP. From now on, XP users who wish to have security upgrades will have to enter into a contract with the company, which includes a migration plan that provides for an eventual upgrade to Windows 8.
