Windows XP - Rest in Peace

“In this business it takes time to be really good - and by that time, you're obsolete.”

As I work on something for my next post, here's a bit of news that is flying all over the web. At this point, this is little more than a reminder that a die that was cast a long time ago, is coming to rest shortly

Tomorrow, April 8th, 2014, is a big day for computer operating systems.

Windows XP is no longer going to be supported by Microsoft.

What does that mean?

No more security patches, tech support, nothing.  Windows XP is set adrift, just another piece of jetsam in the technological world.

Hopefully, everyone has made their moves.  Decommissioned Windows XP boxes from production, or relegated them to old test stations.

But get ready!  Tomorrow is the big day.  After twelve long "computer years", Windows XP is passing into history.
