Microsoft has finally announced the date for the end of security updates for its Windows XP operating system. As of now Microsoft is releasing security updates for Windows XP, but due to security issues and to move more users from XP to Windows 8, Microsoft has decided to stop updates in 2014.

According to Gartner prediction, more than 15% of medium and large enterprises will still have Windows XP running on at least 10% of their PCs after Microsoft support ends in April 2014. This means, people and organizations using Windows XP SP3 will be prone to bugs and flaws in the OS, as Microsoft is not going to fix those bugs. They will be open to malware, spyware and even viruses.
