Although these yearsWindowsXP users are really less, but the transition from XP migration to new systems is much slower thanMicrosoftAs expected, many users have postponed upgrades for a variety of reasons, including the associated cost of purchasing new hardware and the complexity of the upgrade process, making the Windows XP operating system still very popular today.
According to NetMarketShare's statistics at the beginning of this month, Windows XP's market share in July last year was 8.55%, followed by 6.19% in September, but it recovered to 7.64% in a month. This situation continues, sometimes falling, and sometimes new market share growth. However, the overall trend is still declining. The Windows XP market share is currently 5.04%, which is the latest statistics for May 2018.
To be honest, the Windows XP system is really an antique. Everyone must abandon it. No matter how much you like it, there are dozens or even hundreds of reasons you like. You should give up quickly. Here are three things you must give up. The reason for Windows XP. .
First of all, security. There is no doubt that security is currently the number one issue facing Windows XP computers. This operating system has not received any updates since Microsoft announced its end of support. Although there are exceptions, there is only one, at the time to urgently fix the WannaCry vulnerability, so a large number of unknown vulnerabilities have still not been patched, which is equivalent to the entire computer exposed to risk.
Considering that every version of Windows shares most of the code, as long as a security vulnerability is found in any version of Windows, it may affect other versions. This means that if a hacker finds a vulnerability in Windows 7 or Windows 8.1 or Windows 10, it is likely to affect Windows XP as well. The problem is that the first three Microsoft will still release patches, but there is no such treatment for XP, after all, no updates will be obtained.
Again, the application supports it. Third-party applications when Microsoft gives up official support for Windows XP systemsDevelopmentNaturally, developers or developers are beginning to pay attention to such signals. In the past few years, more and more developers have turned their focus to Windows 7, 8.1 and 10, because most users have upgraded to the new system.
At the same time, Windows XP has limited support for new technologies and new features, making many of the more advanced software features and security difficult to implement, which more or less forced developers to abandon the platform. In fact, this is a move that developers have to accept, not necessarily because they want to do it, but because they have to do so. Otherwise, these developers' products will lack a lot of new features, appear obsolete and old, and can only support Windows XP.
Big companies like Google and Mozilla have chosen to bid farewell to Windows XP, and the browser versions for Windows XP are currently in maintenance mode, and support will soon end.
Finally, the new missing feature. The Windows XP operating system has always been praised for its features and functionality. In fact, many people like this operating system because it is stable enough and fully functional. But in the past decade, Windows systems have changed a lot, Windows 10 now has more advanced features, and these features are completely impossible to port back to Windows XP.
As Microsoft officially advertises, Microsoft Edge browsers, native integrated Cortana assistants, a new operations center, a gradual transition to a design language, better support for touch screens and styluses, and more, are Windows 10 operations. The system's unique features today.
Of course, for those who are once reluctant to give up Windows XP, the biggest problem may be the cost involved in the migration of the old system to the new system. Windows XP can still run on some very old hardware, but these old hardware can no longer support the Windows 10 operating system, so in many cases, users can only choose to purchase a new computer to upgrade.
To tell the truth, four years have elapsed since the end of Windows XP support. The cost of upgrading should not be a big problem, because the hardware cost four years ago is much cheaper today, but the brand new is rare, but even Buying a new computer that can satisfy Windows 10 is far less expensive than you think.
In any case, no matter how long Windows XP can survive, everyone will give up sooner or later. Moreover, Microsoft is not so concerned about Windows XP, because the bigger problem for Microsoft is that Windows 7 is following the footsteps of Windows XP. After less than two years, Microsoft will announce that it will give up support for Windows 7. In order to convince users to upgrade the Windows 10 system, Microsoft will launch another promotion campaign.
In your opinion, is Windows XP supposed to give up now? What are the users who are still sticking to Windows XP?
