Windows XP is ending support

 

Why Should I Upgrade From Windows xpXP?

Security
Windows XP is inherently more risky even now, and when Microsoft stops supporting the venerable OS this April, (April 8th, 2014) your PC will be virtually defenseless.

New Technology
As new technologies are developed, they’re generally engineered with the latest operating systems in mind, and unlikely to be supported on Windows XP.

Aero Snap & File History
Aero Snap makes maximizing, minimizing, and organizing windows as simple as dragging them to the edge of the display. File History (Windows 8) scans your files every hour and stores copies of the incremental changes over time.

Hardware
Your old hardware has a limited life span. It will eventually need to be replaced, and just like an older car, parts become harder to find and more expensive ($$$).
