Time to upgrade.

This is not a full blog post.  I found this nifty little image on neowin which compares internet security from 2001 to internet security from 2013.  It highlights how important it is to have an up to date operating system to help keep you safe from threats online.

I also found it amazing just how far we have come in 12 years.   It’s hard to think that only 12 years ago were we still using that god awful dial up internet which made that really annoying noise when you wanted to connect to it.  (Click on the image to see it full size, then click the image again to zoom in)

Microsoft will be dropping all support and updates for Windows XP in April 2014.  XP had a great run but now is the time to let it go.  Upgrade to Windows 7 or even Windows 8. Be more secure anti-virus won’t always protect your information or data.  Remember no OS is 100% safe from threats.  So even those using mac and Linux should take note.
