Repent! The end of days are near! In less than 30 days now, Microsoft will be pulling the plug on XP support. What does that mean? Well, when you call Microsoft for XP support after April 9th, you’ll be laughed at and promptly hung up on. After that date, XP will go to sleep forever along with Windows 2000, Windows ME, and Windows 98. No more updates, no more patches, no more nothing. do not pass go, do not collect $200. Remember, XP came out back in 2001. Well, it was a pretty good run, but remember back in 2001 people still took Eminem seriously, and the first generation X-Box was the hottest new toy. Yeah, it was that long ago…
All you luddites out there were warned. Vista’s been out since 2006, Seven’s getting long in the tooth now too, that came out in 2009.
Now while some fear mongerers are predicting the worst thing since Y2K, and others suggest the holdouts will be just fine, as with most things I suspect the reality will be somewhere in the middle, it’s still not going to be pretty.
