Still Have Windows XP?

Windows 7 is officially the campus operating system for PCs. For the past few years, campus PCs ran on Windows XP. With the release of Windows 7, XP is not as readily as supported as it once was.

While most of the campus is currently running Windows 7, our reports still show a few computers that are still running XP. If you know of any computers still running on XP, please let the Service Desk know so that we can schedule those to be upgraded.

Microsoft will only offer support of Windows XP until April 2014. This means that after this date XP will no longer receive updates and will become static. Not only that, software will no longer be developed for that operating system. To ensure that the every machine on campus receives its proper updates and is ready for future software deployment, we would like to show Windows 7 at 100% here on campus!

If you know of any campus PCs that still use the Windows XP Operating System, please contact the Service Desk (4-HELP) or send us an e-mail.

Thank you for your assistance!
