April 1

With Windows XP support ending on April 8th, 2014, Microsoft is offering free migration tools for those still unfortunate enough to be using Windows XP. Whether by choice, necessity or laziness, those still on XP should consider upgrading. In my experiences, if you have at least 2 GB. of memory, anything that is running Windows XP will support Windows 7, in most cases you will even see some performance improvements. You may experience issues with using legacy (really really old) software/hardware but in typical cases you’ll be just fine.

Visit http://www.windowsxp.com for free migration software and additional migration information

PS: The price for Windows 7 has dropped by a lot these past few weeks, probably Microsoft’s way to help those still on XP. Remember, most universities will also offer highly discounted or free software to students and employees.
