We'd just like to remind our clients that our Platinum suite of programs will not be supporting Windows XP in the new year.
As an article by Jeff back in July along with several of our previous newsletters have pointed out it’s end of the line for Windows XP.
Microsoft themselves long ago abandoned support for this version of Windows. It's just become too difficult to continue to support it in a world constantly moving forward. We’ve reluctantly decided that continuing support of a product now only used by around 5% of our users is wildly uneconomic.
From January 2017 we will be supporting Windows Vista and later.
Our sincere recommendation is to upgrade, not just for Platinum but also to be safe from the viruses that can wriggle through insecurities in XP with impunity.
