US Firms Struggling with Windows XP End of Life

A surprising number of US firms will continue running Windows XP after the end of life (EOL) cut-off this April, a survey for cloud services firm Evolve IP has found. Some planning upgrades will use the cloud and virtualisation to rationalise their PC infrastructure going forward.
