Windows XP (2001-2014), Microsoft’s Ubiquitous Operating System for Computers

Windows XP

Windows XP, the ubiquitous operating system for computers from Microsoft, stopped receiving official support from the software company on Tuesday, April 8, 2014. Originally released in 2001, Windows XP received extended support long after the typical 10-year cycle that most Microsoft products receive. Given that it will no longer receive this support, it is recommended that users move on to a different operating system to avoid any potential security risks.
