Windows XP End-of-Life: Understanding Your Options - http://bit.ly/1dkSkga 

+Johan Hammerstrom +NTEN +Laura Quinn +TechSoup  +NetSquared 

Windows XP is one of the oldest, most successful operating systems of all time. Released in 2001, it has been the backbone for many organizations. Microsoft has continued to support Windows XP with technical support and software updates for the past 13 years.

As you may have heard, Microsoft will be ending support for Windows XP on April 8, 2014. This means newly discovered security holes will not be patched, newly discovered bugs will not be fixed and, increasingly, new software will not run on Windows XP.

Community IT has put together a brief FAQ to address the issue. Please contact your technical lead if you have additional questions or want to take action.
