All that is at one time great has to eventually give way to the future. This week it was the turn of Windows XP to find that its days are now done. But what has it given way to?
If you are a Microsoft fan then you might hope that it is Windows 7 or 8.1. However, Microsoft has come in for much criticism and uptake of Surface and Windows 8 has performed well below expectation if the figures for the number of surplus units are believed.
However, an operating system is just an operating system. What really count are applications and which operating systems support your applications.
In recent weeks Microsoft has expanded the options for using the cloud based Office 365 suite. Whether you are a smaller, mid-sized or expanding business, Office 365 offers a great deal of flexibility especially when on the move.
The most eagerly anticipated is the release of Office for iPad, which was announced by new Microsoft chief Satya Nadella on 27 March. This offers OWA to access Exchange/Outlook based email and options for editing and viewing office suite documents on iPads and iPhones. Lync and SharePoint are also available.
Not wishing to leave Android users behind Microsoft has also extended Office 365 interoperability to include Android devices. Exchange/Outlook mail is supported as well as viewing and editing on Android based phones and tablets and connectivity for Lync and SharePoint.
