Windows XP: Countdown to Retirement

Retirement EggAfter 11 years of faithful service the time has come for one of the most reliable operating systems to retire. We are still a year away from this happening, but come April 2014, Microsoft will no longer offer any fixes for XP errors. That means no more updates which in turn can lead to data vulnerability.

Since XP will eventually lose support from Microsoft, we have been very proactive in making sure that everyone on campus is upgraded to Windows 7. If you are still on XP after April 2014, your computer will need to be removed from the network to prevent network vulnerabilities. If you, or anyone you know, is still on Windows XP please contact the Service Desk (4-HELP) to place a work order for your computer to be upgraded.
