Microsoft has certainly been doing its best to get large businesses to upgrade from Windows XP to Windows 7 or 8 before the support deadline is reached on April 8, 2014. Now it looks like Dell is offering its own services to help with the Windows XP transition and its promoting those efforts in a new video.
The clip, posted on Dells YouTube channel, has been made mostly for IT managers who have perhaps procrastinated on their Windows upgrade plans. The animated video, compete with pleasing background music, claims that those IT workers can leave the upgrade process to Dells Windows Migration Services, which it says will be able to help businesses save lots of time and money, no matter how far along their own Windows XP upgrade plans might be at this time.
We will likely see more and more third party companies jumping in to offer their services to help businesses ditch Windows XP before its support deadline comes up in six months. Net Applications showed that worldwide adoption of Windows XP is still at 31.41 percent, although those numbers have been taking a steep dive in the last couple of months. During Microsofts recent analyst meeting, the company claimed it was hoping to bring that percentage down to below 13 percent by April 8.
