It’s already costing you. It’s more expensive to run Windows XP compared to Windows 7. Not only are you looking at greater IT labor costs but also user productivity costs. IDC’s study found that for five-year-old PCs running Windows XP, user productivity costs per PC per year nearly doubled from $177 in year two to $324 in year five, while IT labor costs per PC per year jumped from $451 in year two to $766 in year five. That’s a rise of 70 percent in three years.

Tick tock. Six months. That’s equivalent to 181 days; 4344 hours; 250,640 minutes; or 15,638,400 seconds. Are you counting the days until extended Windows XP support expires on April 8, 2014?

If you fall into the 18 percent of companies that Forrester Research Inc. has identified as not having yet migrated from Windows XP, read on. Stop your inertia. It’s not too late. Here are six good reasons, identified by Sumir Karaya, CEO of 1E, to migrate your operating system now.
