a bit like having an armored door but noticing that you have left too many keys around. The result is that being a thief in the house for a moment and, if the door is brought into your computer, the damage could be devastating. The 8th of April was not just any date, but the day when Microsoft after 12 years pulled the plug of updates to its most beloved operating system .. Or: dead Xp, viva Xp. Not so much, though. Because the risk and not the fault of Xp, it is clear that our sensitive data become prey to those who go hunting: lower your defenses, here are codes, passwords, credit cards, medical records can end up on the web, with damage that is anything but virtual. That's why Microsoft has decided to launch, if not a real alarm, at least a warning: Twelve years are so many for an operating system explained the Microsoft CEO, Carlo Purassanta. In this time frame the world changed and three new systems arrived. The problem, however, is that in the space age there is still a piece of planet that travels on diesel and is called public administration. In practice, small hospitals, small banks and maybe even some ATMs: everything is still based on XP and therefore it appeals to hackers. Do it especially after April 8th. Solutions? Get updated, of course, just as Microsoft would like, which certainly also makes an economic calculation but does not actually hide a basic concern. Many customers have told us that they think of migrating to an X-1 version: in practice, instead of Windows 8, many want to stop at 7 o'clock for more security reasons, not thinking about how to stay back five years: you would do it buying a car? We are ready to support individuals and companies, helping them to recognize the threats related to the vulnerability and the advantages offered by a modern operating system to work more efficiently, effectively and safely. So here is the final update of Windows 8.1 coming April 2, with the changes requested by users who have found version 8 too innovative. Our company wants to make things better for users who do not have a PC without touchscreen told Microsoft Mobile World Vice President Joe Belfiore. The most important and expected changes are the possibility of starting the computer directly from the desktop without going through the Start and starting the Windows 8 apps even from the taskbar. Everything ok, in short: without touchscreens you will work well anyway. But what do we do with our old oil-based PCs? The password at the end to redevelop, because since April 8 there will be no more security updates or technical assistance. But to do this you need a project, a company that manages systems to turn to and the time it takes, since the work rate is around 20-25 computers a day. And we're talking about the Italian public administration: do you think we'll make it?
