Are You Leaving Windows XP?

The Windows XP operating system made a big splash when it launched in 2001 and has been a workhorse for many businesses, schools, and municipalities for over 12 years. Many of you may not know that Microsoft stopped supporting XP in April 2014. This means that Microsoft has stopped fixing and patching the XP operating system vulnerabilities or exploits as they become known. Your first clue might be when you try to perform a Windows Update and there are no available updates or patches available. So what you thought would always be a solid, dependable workhorse is going to become more unreliable over time with no fix available. So what are your options?

Depending on who you ask, the answer might be change to Apple products. But for Windows aficionados, the logical choice is an upgrade to Windows 7 or 8.1. Some developers have also had positive things to say after previewing Windows 10, which will be available later this year. While Virtual TimeClock runs just fine on computers still using Windows XP, there are benefits to keeping your computer systems up-to-date with the latest advances in technology.

If you've been forced to upgrade your XP computers and need a modern, secure time clock to run on the latest Windows and Apple operating systems, then check out a free software trial of Virtual TimeClock.
