Support for Windows XP coming to an end April 8, 2014

Microsoft’s extended lifecycle support for Windows XP will end on April 8, 2014. This means there will be no more critical and security upgrades for Windows XP after that date. As a LAN Administrator, you need to ensure that all administrative computers in your department are running one of these supported operating systems: Windows 7, Windows Vista, or Windows 8 (once it is available and tested at McGill).

IT Services has started installing Windows 7 on all administrative computers that we support. We tested Windows 7 on McGill centrally supported systems and approve its use on McGill-owned computers. Read Windows 7 Implementation at McGill and the Windows 7 compatibility list found in the IT Knowledge Base.
