Windows 8 Is Coming...

While it may seem like an just another unwanted upgrade by Microsoft, there are real advantages to replacing aging XP computers with Windows 7 computers. Windows XP has not been available on a new PC since October of 2010, so most PCs running Windows XP are starting to show their age. Windows XP has been around since 2001, which means the bad guys have had 10 plus years to find security holes. While Microsoft has done its best to release security updates, Windows XP computers are at a significantly higher risk to be infected with viruses and malware than Windows 7 computers. Security is not the only advantage to Windows 7. It is also able to more efficiently utilize resources and therefore provide better performance. Simply put, replacing a Windows XP computer with a Windows 7 computer will make your environment more secure and will increase worker productivity.

Our St. Louis managed services can help you identify which machines need to be replaced or upgraded. With St. Louis IT support, you can always stay within the product life cycle of Microsoft, and Forward Slash Technology can help you learn which computers are threats to security at your business.

If you have any questions, or you would like to know more about our St. Louis IT services, St. Louis managed services, or St. Louis IT outsourcing, contact Forward Slash Technology today.
