InformationWeek's Community of IT Professionals Discuss the Impending Windows XP Deadline

Conversations That Matter on InformationWeek.com

The new community-driven InformationWeek is playing host to an energetic discussion among IT professionals on Microsoft's deadline for the end of Windows XP, just three months away. According to InformationWeek's "Windows XP Won't Go Quietly" feature story, even with the impending deadline fast approaching, three out of four IT professionals must still support the operating system.

Microsoft will stop supporting XP, its most popular operating system ever until Windows 7, on April 8, 2014. . This means no more updates, no more bug fixes, and - perhaps most important of all - no more security patches.
