FILE - In this Oct. 25, 2001 file photo, then Microsoft chairman Bill Gates speaks during the product launch of the new Windows XP operating system in New York. Gates touted the software as the harbinger of a new era in more Internet-centric computing. On Tuesday, April 8, 2014, Microsoft will end support for its still popular Windows XP. With an estimated 30 percent of businesses and consumers still using the 12-year-old operating system, the move could put everything from the data of major financial institutions to the identities of everyday people in danger if they don’t find a way to upgrade soon.
