On April 8th, 2014, Microsoft will end support for their Windows XP and Office 2003 products. After this date, Microsoft will no longer provide patches for any security vulnerabilities found. It's safe to assume that many hackers will hold off on using the exploits they've found until after that date, rendering Windows XP unusable almost immediately.
For this reason, Palante Tech will no longer be able to support computers running Windows XP or Office 2003 after April 8th, 2014. We ask that our clients plan to replace, upgrade, or retire the computers you still have running Windows XP and/or Office 2003.
Many of our clients pay us a monthly fee to manage their computers. If that applies to your organization, we have detailed inventory sheets of all of your computers. We can send you lists of computers needing replacement and computers needing upgrade on request.
