When Microsoft decided to cease all support for Window XP few years back, the news spread like a virus. It when viral and it also became treading in twitter as I remember. Recently, I just spotted (which it might be already few months back), Redmond has released the confirm date on their website.
But, what made me interested is that, Microsoft will do the same thing to Office 2003 on the same date. Well, that’s a good thing. It push people to migrate to the new system, even not everyone like to use the latest software when they still just a beginner and new to Microsoft. As we know, XP user is 2nd larger after Window 7 in the world. And current latest OS from Microsoft, Window 8.1 is apparently climbing to win many heart of Window fan. The action made by Microsoft apparently, will help to push their user to use the OS instead . But, personally, with this move, I hope there will be a royalty program from those has use the original OS as a reward or trusting Microsoft brand. Anyway, let’s talk about the Office 2013. Microsoft since 2011, has launch a new office suite called Office 365. It is a subscription-based online office and software plus services suite which offers access to various services and software built around the Microsoft Office platform. Serving as a successor to Microsoft’s Business Productivity Online Suite, the service was originally designed to provide hosted e-mail, social networking and collaboration, and cloud storage to teams and businesses and it sync with your smartphone and tablet as well. So, thing to change a new version? Then, I would like to suggest you to get this. Save a lots of money too. more details checkout their website.
So, before all of us pass that, dateline, I like to urging all of you to migrate your old system to better and more secure + new system at least the OS. Billion of MYR losses due to unmaintained update. I also believe of the latest work related software did not support XP any longer. So, what use to keep your old XP? you better keep it on your closest the OS CD or decorate it nicely *(if XP is your 1st OS). Happy migrating.
*p/s: seem i need to renew my Office 365 before end of february as well.. err Microsoft, can you help?
