We’ve already explained why it’s time to let go of Windows XP and what will happen when Microsoft finally stops supporting it on April 8, 2014. It doesn’t support modern hardware properly and it isn’t as secure as modern versions of Windows because it doesn’t have User Account Control and other modern security features.

(Forget what you may have heard about UAC in the Windows Vista days — it’s better now.) As time goes on, Windows XP will become increasingly insecure and both hardware and software vendors will stop supporting it.

Depending on your version of Windows, this could mean downloading but not installing the updates, notifying but not downloading them, or even disabling Windows Update completely.
