Support for Windows XP and Office 2003 Will End as of April 8th, 2014

As of April 8th, 2014, it appears that support for Microsoft Office 2003 will end along with support for Microsoft Windows XP.  It's been a long run and a lot of people and businesses are still using these platforms, but it is keeping in alignment with Microsoft's 10 year commitment minimum  to support it's products.  

This means no more updates for XP also.  I know this is welcome to some people and I know that I have been burned by the forced restart updates in windows before, but seriously, it's time to find a new platform.  XP has only been around for almost 12 years.  It's a testament to the greatness of the product, but really, it is way overdue to switch.

If you are working with these platforms yet, as I know a lot of you are, I suggest starting to formulate your migration plans now, or at least start to NOW!!
