China Demands For More Windows XP Support

       live support for XP

The most popular operating system that Microsoft has ever produced is Windows XP. It is embedded with some outstanding features and functions making it suitable for both businesses as well as for personal purposes. The release of other versions of operating system does not affect the popularity of Windows XP and it still has a high share in the computer market. However, even with this demand, the tech giant came up with a shocking decision to discontinue the Windows live support given to this operating system. In fact, this is a very bad news for the Windows XP users, especially the users in China where 54 percent of the population still use this age old operating system.

Besides this, the Redmond based company has also decided to stop the sales of the basic versions of the Windows 7 operating system. This is the second most popular operating system in China behind Windows XP and has a 28 percent computer market share in the country. According to the Techweb, the tech giant Microsoft is putting the Windows users to many security threats, says the State Copyright Bureau of China’s government in response to this Microsoft’s decision.

Moreover, the State Copyright Bureau of China’s government is demanding for more Windows XP support and at the same time, they want Microsoft to rethink their decision to stop the sales of Windows 7 operating system. Any upgrade of the system to Windows 8 will demand more costs for the software and the OS, according to the Bureau representative. Windows 8 has a very less percentage of market shares and it constitutes only three percent.

With the end of Windows XP support, the Windows XP machines will no longer receive any updates that are required and as a result, your Windows XP machine will become more susceptible to viruses and attacks and will finally affect the efficiency of your system. In China, apart from the home uses, Windows is the main operating system employed in many government departments. The government argues that they took the software by paying huge amount of money. Therefore, it is the duty of Microsoft to keep the OS safe and updated. To verify whether the departments are using the genuine Microsoft software, several government departments have sent their inspection teams. This is to avoid the pirated versions of the OS.

The main reason behind this decision by Microsoft is to attract more users to the Windows 8 operating system. Microsoft wants the Windows XP users to upgrade their systems to the latest OSs like Windows 7 or Windows 8. To know more regarding upgrading to Windows 8, contact the Windows live support center.
