Windows XP has been one of the most wildly successful products by Microsoft. Even when originally released years ago and succeeded by later products such as Windows Vista and Windows 7, Windows XP continues to be the most-used operating system around the globe. But Microsoft wants to move on now. In an official statement, Microsoft has given customers 800 days to switch to the later version of Windows. According to Microsoft, after 800 days the official support for Windows XP will be withdrawn.


It’s hard to believe but the fact is that Windows XP commandeers nearly 46.52 percent of the global market in terms of OS usage. It is followed by Windows 7 which has a global share of 36.99 %. While the immediate successor to XP, Windows Vista was a huge failure, Microsoft has been able to cover it up with the release of Windows 7 which has proved to be a very stable operating system.

The reason for Windows XP’s wild popularity was also that it was extremely stable. And for this very reason, it has stood the test of time for so very long a time. Now, however, it does seem plausible that Microsoft wants users to upgrade to recent version of Windows. According to Microsoft, the official support for Windows XP will be extended for approximately another 800 days. After that, Microsoft will not officially be supporting the operating system. The exact statement by Microsoft read, “It takes 18-24 months to plan for and deploy a new operating system. If you haven’t started planning to migrate your Windows XP PCs to a modern OS, or if your migration plan have stalled here are some great tools to help you.”

It is indeed ample time, even for the laziest ones, to easily transition to the recent Windows versions.
