It has been 10 years since the first ever Windows XP hit the shelves. 10 years in human terms is very little, its like a little child. But, in software terms its revolutionary. Within no time windows XP was able to capture the majority of the OS market share and raise its position to a monopoly in the market. Where as its predecessors Windows Vista failed to take off. It made Microsoft to go back to drawing boards and this time they came out with Windows 7.



As statcounter say that windows XP "Still" holds 48% of the market share followed by Windows 7, Windows Vista and MacOSX. It is not exaggeration to say that virtually any one who know computer must have come across Windows XP the serene blue desktop and its intuitive interface.

Time has come to end this beautiful story of Windows XP. Microsoft is all set to end technical support to Win XP by April 2014. Internet Explorer 9 will not run on windows XP.This means you have around 2 years of time to move on to next operating system.
