Windows XP Support anti-malware support extension

Windows XP help and support cut-off starting APRIL 8, 2014 would have resulted in moving out of Windows XP from everywhere including the 0.5 million ATM machines.

Now this extension will provide anti-malware security till July 2015. Not much of an extension but better than nada.

Read the full story here:

Windows XP is 'no longer supported operating system' means,

"Windows XP users will no longer receive new security updates, non-security hotfixes, free or paid assisted support options, or online technical content updates from Microsoft."

I think users should simply bypass Windows 7 and go directly to Windows 8.1, of course this will depend on those selling software for ATM machines.
