It is a matter of time for Windows XP to disappear from the foreground

Windows XP support was completed in April of 2014, and despite the security risks caused by old software, 2001's operating system continues to feed a large number of computers around the world.

London Metropolitan Police are one of the organizations that still choose Windows XP, ignoring the dangers of this operation.

This year, however, transition from Windows XP is a reality as long as MET employees guarantee upgrading to Windows 10 until May.Windows XP

Recall that the transition from Window XP to Windows 10 was relatively slow for London police, as 2014 started, as the upgrade process left about 35.000 Windows XP computers in April 2015 and 18.000 in June 2017.

The London police will not only replace the operating system of its desktops, but will also modernize the computing infrastructure with tablets and laptops for officers as well as a cloud database that will make information management much more easy.

In particular, MET has signed an agreement with the Box to develop cloud-based cloud-based collaboration tools for staff and after a pilot project all services are now available to officers.

However, while more and more organizations are being removed from Window XP, the operating system is still surviving. December data provided by NetMarketShare show that Windows XP was running on 5,18% of computers worldwide in the past month, although they have not been updated since April 2014. Window XP started 2001.
