XP support ticking down

With Windows XP now having less than a year of support left, I have been recommending people to start considering what they will do to replace it. Some are just going to buy a new PC with Windows 8 (not sooo bad with the addition of Start Menu 8, which makes it just like using Windows 7), others are considering Macs. Then there are those that cannot afford a new PC, and are considering the free option of Linux, which is also my operating system of choice (I’m currently using Linux Mint, which a derivative of Ubuntu, which is a derivative of Debian).

In light of all this, this article seemed somewhat relevant. Enjoy.
