We've warned you time and time again -- if you're running Windows XP, you need to upgrade, either your PCs, or at least the operating system. To be fair, the 29 percent of the population that is still actively using XP are probably either companies with proprietary software that isn't compatible with Windows 7 or 8.1, or people in developing countries, but still, if any of your firm's computers are on XP, upgrade.
Why? End of life means no more security updates. It means your PC (and your law firm's client files) becomes a hacker's dream. And Microsoft, ever mindful of the 29 percent of the world that hasn't upgraded (that's roughly 19 percent more of a market share than Windows 8 and 8.1 combined, by the way), has a plan to poke and prod you into upgrading.
It involves nagging and possible freebies.
