The two-year countdown until Microsoft pulls the plug on its official support for the Windows XP operating system has begun.

The announcement was made by Microsoft in a post on Monday on the Windows Team Blog reminding people that the two-year countdown until Microsoft will no longer support Windows XP has begun.

The countdown actually began on Saturday, April 7.

Microsoft writes:

“Back in October we celebrated the anniversaries of Windows XP and Office 2003 and took the opportunity to remind everyone that on April 8, 2014, we will officially end support for these versions of Windows and Office. Today, we want to acknowledge the two-year countdown to the end of Windows XP and Office 2003 support, which was this past Sunday.”

Microsoft wants people to Upgrade from Windows XP and Office 2003 to its newer counterparts like the Windows 7 OS and Office  2010.

“If you still have some PCs running Windows XP and Office 2003 in your organization, now would be a good time to start migrating them to Windows 7 and Office 2010,” Microsoft said.
