Weird the night I think uses windows XP is being end of life which means it's officially going to be dead.
We have 363.
Days left -- this point April 8.
2014 is the end of life for windows XP the operating system liberty knew and loved that's what we all got hooked on windows from.
So that's a really big deal.
Corporations like ours you're still run XP a lot of big corporations are still running at you at home I still have an XP desktop if you do it's -- to start thinking what am I gonna do.
And one thing people are thinking is windows eight new computers -- we just get something new that's the other big bit of news here that.
Windows PC sales fell drastically dramatically -- have finally.
Something like 14% in the past quarter and a lot of people are saying windows eight is to blame.
So two big problems for windows right now and a lawyer for one thing new thing isn't really working out it's kind of a crisis for the windows world.
Yet when -- -- had a couple problems before when they're doing they've upgraded their operating systems I know.
-- -- you mentioned here in the studio and I'm familiar with XP a mommy's XP home have legal as a little -- -- with Windows 7.
Yeah and and when it was Windows 7 right people -- a lot of problems with correct.
Windows Vista up was the upgrade to windows XP this is done years and years to make this and everyone hated it it was.
God universally -- based enough yes Microsoft that they it was actually -- great success for the company.
Microsoft has a monopoly whatever they do is a huge success they roll out product and Dell and Lenovo and IBM and HP and everyone puts on their computers and Microsoft automatically wins however we the consumers do not win.
Vista with hated and despised.
Windows 7 came out.
Three or four years ago that was the big update to this then that was a huge success and -- loved it again and everything is kind of success for Microsoft perspective.
So windows eight with the newly released version -- upgrade to seven that was hated so they're really going cyclically here XP was great.
Just it was bad when a seven was great when is it is that what's coming up next.
If they're falling on that pattern it's gonna be great right now there and is this real challenging space though where people are by and these people are buying these -- -- buying desktops.
What are we gonna do it's a real crisis for the windows world.
-- so what is the biggest complaint windows eight I mean I know that because for those of us use apple.
Obviously very interactive there are a lot of problems with the -- site when you -- -- when they when they updated there usually are very small glitches if that.
I remember when I had a prima windows computers all Taiwanese to be all windows him -- there -- a lot more problems is it is it that is it because we have tablets and things just so easy that people are expecting more.
It's funny you mention apple because apple is the big problem with windows when apple came out the iPad really changed around the market they sold.
Hundreds of millions of those things ever realize that mobility in -- the -- Smartphones and tablets is where it's at I think if you if you ask me and you did some that don't hit.
Microsoft pushed a little bit too far in their response to that when they came -- -- windows eight which is.
He won operating system that runs everything that they do they created this whole tablet interface what's got big buttons and you can touch -- you can play around with that.
It's wonderful on a tablet it's glorious on a tablet it puts the iPad to shame if you're going to get a tablet go get a windows eight tablet.
However know -- hats there aren't really a lot of windows eight tablets.
And the problem is that the same operating system runs on your desktop computer on your laptop computer which does not heavy touch interface you aren't doing this on that computer screen.
And if you try to exceed terrible experience I told Microsoft this myself and I met them a year ago I said this is going to be a horrible experience.
I'm not taking.
Claim that he ever -- to the same thing to them it's just not a very good experience on a computer Windows 7 was a great experience.
They brought this new thing -- you go to the computer store these days wanna get a windows computer.
You kinda have to get a windows -- computers as what's there and people are saying you know what.
I'm just gonna go by had 400 dollar talents they skipped the computer I don't need a computer right now the -- that's probably good enough.
It's a real challenge for the company -- right they make their money by selling computers.
They do local question reviewer just stuff but it -- -- like Chad thank you well.
Way into the -- on Twitter on FaceBook -- right here of course in the live chat asking can all PCs that run XP.
Run the windows eight.
That's very clearly most of them -- -- and the most of the newer models can be upgraded probably pretty easily as soon.
Newer computers five even six year old computers I think at this point could probably still run windows eight it's kind of remarkable it boots.
Vastly faster than the other computer any -- -- system has.
If your computer does run XP it.
Probably will run windows eight.
However if you have an XP computer I think you're going a lot better off to buying -- new system you get a new computer for 4500 bucks these days it'll be a lot faster it'll be a lot more powerful.
And republic take -- -- in the new hardware you know if you got an XP computer you probably don't have USB 2.0.
Much less that super fast USB three point oh and you probably don't have a high definition interface to your monitor there's a lot of things that older computers -- don't have these days.
