Microsoft has announced that it will end its support to all Windows XP systems after April 8 this year. The company has been warning Windows XP users for quite some time now regarding this regime shift.

This will also poke hackers all over to play with possible weak spots in the operating system as Microsoft will no longer serve its fixes.

Last February 2014, a US-based firm had said its PC install base for large enterprises in India is about 4 million units, of which around 84 percent have migrated from Windows XP.

Windows XP, which was launched in October 2001, is three generations behind the latest operating system Windows 8 that was launched in October 2012.

The current XP version is called Windows XP Service Pack 3.
