Windows Users Refuse to Ditch XP …Much to Microsoft’s Chagrin
Microsoft is a little over a month away from killing off its überpopular Windows XP operating system – April 8, 2014 – However, it seems that punters aren’t entirely in agreement with the tech-giants death yell.
February’s trends for XP and Windows 8 were unwelcome news at Microsoft, but perhaps not unexpected. In the past weeks the company has been reduced to asking customers for help in shrinking XP’s still-strong presence and has reportedly severely slashed the price of Windows 8 licenses to makers of low-priced devices in an effort to boost sales.
Much to the chagrin of Microsoft, for the second month in a row, Windows XP and Windows 8 both defied the maker’s wishes, XP, which Microsoft just wants to go away, gained user share, and Windows 8, the OS Microsoft hopes will fuel sales of new devices, flatlined in February.
Windows XP increased its share by .3 of a percentage point in February, ending the month at 29.5 percent of all personal – desktop and notebook – computers globally. In January, XP had gained a quarter of a point. The fact that the well-aged operating system accounts for a third of all Windows based PCs also has to have Microsoft tearing out strands of hair. Killing off the OS is likely to upset once loyal Microsoft devotees, but is anything likely to halt the funeral? Not a hope in hell according to Microsoft

In our online lives, nothing sends a shiver quite as quickly as a bluescreen, going down via bad hard-drives, corrupt installs or withering hardware is one thing, going blue via a virus is another story entirely, data is more often than not lost forever.
Many of the most potent viruses last year were transmitted via links to corrupted sites or email attachments, often hitting as a disguised news story. From government agencies to electronics giants, hackers and attackers fought their way into personal information systems and websites, often just to show it could be done, but more often nefariously stealing valuable personal information.
In 2010 internet security
evangelist Eddy Willems said “The current numbers are alarming. The malware industry has published nearly four new viruses per minute in the first half of 2010. We expect the two million barrier to be broken in the second half of the year
