Microsoft Windows XP end of life reminder.

Microsoft will discontinue support of any type for Windows XP, Windows XP Pro, and Windows XP Pro 64bit editions including security updates and service packs entirely on April 14, 2013.  If you are still utilizing Windows XP be sure to transition to an alternative operating system on or before this date.  I personally recommend migrating to Fedora Linux or Ubuntu Linux as these operating systems will still run effectively on your existing hardware.
