re: XP To Windows 8? Why It's Best To Wait
"Windows 8 offers new and improved features like Secure Boot security "

I wouldn't call this an improved feature. This is one reason why I'll never use windows 8. I like being able to do what I wish with my computer.

As I recall, all of the industry Microsoft haters were predicting the exact same thing about adoption of XP when it was first introduced. A lot they know!

"One thing is certain. Whether they choose Windows 7 or Windows 8, enterprises need to get off XP as quickly as possible. Microsoft will discontinue support for the decade-old OS in 2014." That sounds wrong. It says take your time. You have over a year before you need to worry about this!
