XP: Dont Be Rushed By Scare Tactics
We still support XP on a break/fix
Yes, microsoft support and updates have now stopped for XP, Office 2003 and even Server 2003. Having said this, dont let the marketing and scaremongering force you into a move you might regret. We have already seen some very unethical moves made by IT companies to make a profit out of unsure companies. The fact is, XP will not simply stop working and there are still many options for your business that might not be as expensive as you think.
