There are quite a few Microsoft products recently put on the “end-of-life” list that are still in wide use today. Say what you must about the company. However, the fact that the operating system you purchased in 2001 is still going strong, says a lot!
After 12+ years of use, Microsoft has determined that people need to move up to more current technologies. Innovative Concepts agrees. Recent advances in the newer versions allow a system to run safer, faster, and cleaner.
Here is a copy of a letter sent to Innovative Concepts (and many others) from Microsoft:
The likelihood everyone reading this is using something on this list is very high. Does this mean that on the end-of-life date that the software will be become a pumpkin. No, it is actually more dangerous than that. Yes, the software will continue to operate the same as it always had. However, that is the problem. Since it will no longer be updated, any methods used to take advantage of the software will not be addressed.
As always, Innovative Concepts is available to help. Give them a call with any technical business need. By the way, if you received a copy of this email too, clicking the “Find An IT Expert” will lead you to a search engine that lists Innovative Concepts for both Support and Development.
