  • 09:30-09:50“Thanks for more than 10 great years!” XP – but now it's over!
    In 2001, Microsoft launched Windows XP – an operating system that fascinated private users and business customers alike. Back then, Windows XP supported brand new technologies such as broadband Internet, Wi-Fi, USB, remote desktop, firewall and placed a great emphasis on security, mobility and productivity. Yes, XP had it all! Can Windows 8.1 keep up? You bet it can! Technological developments haven’t stood still over the past twelve years – in fact, it’s quite the opposite. Move with the times! Keep modern & up to date! Use the latest technology and, above all, keep SAFE with Windows 8.1. Let us make the comparison – live and in color!
