So What Is The Deal With Windows XP Support Ending In April?

If you use Windows XP at home, you may have heard that official support for the creaky operating system is ending April 8th, 2014. While Microsoft has muddied the waters a little bit by reversing themselves a couple of times on various things, here is the skinny on what to expect after April 8th:

1 - Windows XP will NOT stop working after April 8th

2 - Microsoft WILL stop issuing any fixes or patches for XP after that date

3 - Windows XP WILL become less secure afterwards as a result

4 - You WILL still be able to install Windows XP after April 8th

5 - All updates up to April 8th WILL be available after that time (for now)
