Upgrading Windows: The Cheap Way

Well, we’ve reached the end… It’s been a good run while it lasted, but it’s time to say your final farewells to Windows XP.  Windows XP was released a mere 13 months after its predecessor Windows ME, which was widely considered one of the worst operating systems of all time.  In contrast, Windows XP is still considered one of the best, or at least most favorite, operating systems of all time with a longevity stretching almost 13 years.  Microsoft typically only supports its products for 10 years, so XP’s EOL (End of Life) has already been pushed back due to customer demand.

You may be unaware that Microsoft has scheduled Windows XP’s EOL for April 8th 2014.
