Wannacrypt has been a Massive
wake up call for many in the industry threatening Windows versions across the board (including Windows 10)
Windows XP users have come under vicious attack for continuing to use the system from parts of the media. (ZDNet being the major culprit)
Jason Perlow was particularly obnoxious
with this cheap and vicious
article Upgrade already! If you're still using Windows XP, you're a menace to society. And, if you're an IT pro with decision-making capacity in an organization that continues to use XP, you should be fired.http://www.zdnet.com/article/if-youre-s ... o-society/
Here in the UK the National Health Service is massively under funded. Upgrading to Windows 10 would be relatively cheap compared to rewriting the highly specialised software designed to run on XP. It would cost Billions
to implement. Only the UK Government
can determine the upgrade timescale.
Of course I am not permitted to comment on this article (which would be scathing)
following being banned for a heated disagreement with Ed Bott.
Other vicious attacks have been made towards those that cannot afford to upgrade their Hardware and even more distasteful the elderly have been targeted for continuing to use XP.
