The end is coming for Windows XP

Redmond, Wash. (AP) - The end is near - for those computers still running Microsoft's XP operating system.

As announced earlier, Microsoft will soon end support for the operating system it first rolled out in 2001. That means there will be no more technical support or security updates for the operating system.

Microsoft says the date XP is dead in its eyes is April 8.

Those who are using XP are being asked to go a special Web site to get information on how to upgrade their systems. Microsoft is urging users to step up to Windows 8. It is more stable than previous versions of Microsoft's operating systems.

However, because it's designed to work with touch screen computers, laptops and tablets, some users have complained it's difficult to navigate.
