That figure certainly covers many businesses, large and small, that rely on XP as a standard and stable environment that supports all their applications and is familiar to their users.
Microsoft may be hoping that the appeal of Office 2013 will prompt more users and businesses to move away from XP.
As a general rule, Microsoft products receive a minimum of 10 years of support (5 years’ mainstream support and 5 years’ extended support).
The much-older (and more persistently popular) Windows XP has more than 10 times that amount, with 7.44% of the market share (meaning that it is ahead of Mac OS X 10.12, Linux and all other versions of Windows except Windows 7 and Windows 10).
Microsoft are terminating their support for Windows Vista and Microsoft Office Suite 2007 on 11th April 2017.
This way you can create an inventory of your programs.
Today I've started important updates for Windows Vista on laptop.
The company may even be looking at the combination of Windows 8 and Office 2013 to convince more people to upgrade both their OS and Office suite around the same time.
April 11 will be a life and death experience for users of Microsoft Windows and Office.Those updates include updates for other programs from Microsoft Update including Microsoft Office 2007 suit.All important updates were up to date of today for the Vista as well as for Office. And I don't know what to do because this update is already installed.This is not an unusual move for Microsoft – the company has routinely discontinued support for products when they hit their 10th birthday – and it’s rare that this happens without a degree of pushback from users.When Microsoft finally ended support for Windows XP in April of 2014, the company had actually supported it for 12 years – and there were still a lot of users unhappy with the move as Windows XP still held an impressive 26 percent of the operating system market at that time (according to data from the Net Market Share Research service).For users of Microsoft Windows Vista, Exchange Server 2007, Office Communicator Phone Edition, Office Inter Connect 2007 and several other smaller products, April 11 is the day Microsoft bids goodbye to any further commitment to update and support these products.
