April 8, 2014 doesn't sound like a historical red letter date, but it is. It was the day Microsoft officially ended support for Windows XP. Hardware manufacturers will also stop supporting chipsets that are XP-compatible at that time, adding to the impact of discontinued support. This means you have limited time to migrate all your desktop computers off Windows XP and put them onto Windows 7 or Windows 8. But the problem is larger than simply migrating desktops from one operating system to another, which is complex enough in itself, because you will also have to upgrade or replace a lot of your desktop hardware along the way. However, there are other options for migrating your desktops that don’t require replacing each piece of hardware, every operating system and upgrading all of your software at the same time. What if, instead, you could move your end-user computing to a platform that is centrally managed, provides a high-performance Windows desktop, and is both future- and past-proof. You can.
