I realize this is probaby known to you and it's still 12 months away. For some of you it deserves some attention.
On April 08, 2014 Microsoft will no longer provide any support for Windows XP. Of course your machines will continue to operate just fine... as long as you never need anything more than what you have now... and nothing breaks.
Windows XP was released in August of 2001 and has had a great life.
What if I don't want to upgrade?
I know, change is hard. Especially when what you have is working just fine. Well, it will continue to work just fine... until it doesn't. Then you will likely be forced into an upgrade that is not on your schedule.
Be pro-active. KNOW that you will be unsupported after 4/8/2014. Consider setting money aside each month to pay for any upgrades you may need in 2014. Set your expectations.
Good News for Trail Blazer customers.
Trail Blazer recently required a .Net software upgrade of all of our customers. We are good for several years. If Trail Blazer is currently running on your PC, it will continue to do so into the foreseeable future.
