I was wondering, what is the difference between end of support for Windows XP and end of support for Windows 2000. Maybe my mind is forgetting but I do not remember there was so much hype to get off a platform like XP when support ended for windows 2000? Just curious if you know why? I do not know.
Jeff, it’s all about the numbers. At the time support for Windows 2000 ended, usage of Windows 2000 was estimated to be at less that one-half of one percent of all Windows users. Usage for Windows XP was counted at nearly 40% of all Windows systems in use as recently as 2012. Windows XP was a very popular platform and many people were in no hurry to change.
Millions of more systems will be at risk when XP support ends.
