Met Police Still Running Windows XP as Upgrade to Windows 8.1 Not Yet Complete

Windows XP no longer receives support since April 2014, but the world is giving up on this old operating system at a painfully slow pace, and the Met Police knows it best.

A new report reveals that the Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) is still running Windows XP on some 19,5000 computers, as the upgrade to Windows 8.1 is not yet complete across the entire organization.

I love everything to do with Microsoft Windows, and the new Windows 10 is great so far. I love to spend my time researching on how viruses and bacteria work in my personal lab. I also enjoy history and comics.
