Microsoft says Goodbye to Windows 8 & Old IE Versions
Finally, the day arrived.. Microsoft says goodbye to Windows 8 by ending the support to the only 3 year old operating sytem as of January 12th 2016, which will mean no more security updates and users may be vulnerable to hacker attacks or several types of other potential threats. So, it will be better to either upgrade or downgrade your Windows 8 running machine in spite of being vulnerable to threats.
What can you Do?
So folks if you are still running Windows 8 on your machine, there are 3 options for you directly from Microsoft. These are—
- Upgrade to Windows 8.1
- Upgrade to Windows 10
- Downgrade to Windows 7
In addition to that Microsoft has also ended the support for Internet Explorer 8, 9, and 10. So if you’re using one of these, it’s the right time for you to move on and upgrade to some higher versions.
But there is also a better option that is– switch to Firefox or Chrome for your web-browsing habits as soon as possible.
Rest in Peace Windows 8 and IE 8, 9, 10!!
