Windows XP's Death: Good Time to Switch to Apple?

Last month after Microsoft officially ended support for Windows XP and the company declared (somewhat misleadingly, it turns out) that it would never again release any more security updates for the nearly 13-year-old operating system, I wrote an article to help users decide whether it might be a good time to switch to an Apple product, especially a Mac or an iPad. Read the article, published by Intego at The Mac Security Blog:

Of course, if you're geeky enough (or on a particularly tight budget), you could keep your old PC hardware and switch to Linux instead.

And don't forget, if you dual-boot your Mac or use Windows XP in a virtual machine (for example, Parallels Desktop, VMWare Fusion, or Oracle VirtualBox), it might be a good idea to upgrade to a currently supported version of Windows.
