Windows XP rides into the Sunset

In a move that will more than likely affect the small business owners more so than anyone, Microsoft will end the sales of Windows XP products on June 30, 2008. The majority of small businesses have been quite reluctant to migrate to the newer Windows Vista operating systems due to glitches and problems running many of their older software titles.

What’s a Small Business Owner To Do?

If you still want an XP operating system in a new computer purchase, the computer makers will provide several options with downgrade rights to XP. What this means is that your system will be equipped with the newer operating system (Vista) and you can reload XP on to the system. Mainstream support for Windows XP will continue through April 14, 2009. Additionally, Microsoft Extended Support will be available until April 8, 2014.
