Microsoft support for Windows XP officially expires in April 2014. Tech Pro Research conducted an online survey of 641 respondents to discover the future plans of organizations that currently use Windows XP.

In the resulting report, The end of Windows XP support: Concerns and upgrade plans, it was somewhat startling to find that 37 percent of respondents do intend to continue using the venerable OS — despite the fact that Microsoft will no longer develop security patches or updates for it.
