Not only does is present the company with a chance to do away with an old platform, but it also helps with the overall adoption of Redmond’s modern platform, Windows 8.1. Plus there is are secondary added benefit for software and hardware companies in this deal as well.
And in order to make sure everyone knows about how risky staying with Windows XP beyond retirement is, Microsoft has just launched a new website.
This simple new website offers three basic sections that detail the why, what and how of migration to a newer platform, along with a number of relevant links. As Microsoft puts it:
“Based on historical customer deployment data, the average enterprise deployment can take 18 to 32 months from business case through full deployment. To ensure you remain on supported versions of Windows and Office, you should begin your planning and application testing immediately to ensure you deploy before end of support.”
Even though the software titan wants the Windows XP user base to move to its modern operating system, Windows 8.1, the website also provides information to consumers and businesses planning to upgrade to the popular and familiar Windows 7.
