The launch of Windows XP takes us back to over a decade ago, nearing on 13 years. Windows XP was eagerly taken too globally with hundreds of millions of copies of XP being sold and used across the globe over its lifespan. Many remained with the Windows XP operating system, it is thought to still, over a decade on, be running on one in every three machines today. Countless have been using the operating system throughout the years throughout organisations, and households and within commercial systems (ATM’s for banking), now with the termination of support for Windows XP the time has arrived to upgrade to a current operating system, something that should probably have been done some time ago is now being forced onto multiples.
