Microsoft announces end of support for Windows XP users

Starting April 8, 2014, Microsoft will no longer support its 11-year-old Windows XP operating system and Microsoft Office 2003.

During this date, Windows XP will no longer benefit from security updates, hotfixes, paid or free support options or online technical content updates.

The Redmond based company advised existing Windows XP users to upgrade their operating systems to Windows 7 & 8 to get a hold of the support Microsoft can give.

In the Philippines, based on Microsoft's estimated data, there are 3.6 million users still under Windows XP.
