Microsoft Software Support Roadmap

Taking a Look at Microsoft’s Support Roadmap

Are You Prepared for Your Products’ End of Support?

by James Nagurney | 01.22.15

As that old sage Yogi Berra once said, “It’s like deja vu all over again.” Last year around this time everyone was gearing up for End of Life for Windows XP, a popular OS to say the least. Now it’s 2015 and time to bid adieu to another popular operating system. Windows Server 2003 and 2003 R2, still widely used, will be coming off Extended Support on July 14 of this year. Time to start thinking about retiring those older servers. You might also be interested to know that Mainstream Support for Windows 7, Windows Server 2008, and Windows Server 2008 R2 expired on January 13, 2015.

Read on for the full story.
