DFI continues supports of  XP-based Operating Systems

August 18, 2014 - DFI will continue to support Microsoft XP-based embedded systems even though Window XP security fixes from Microsoft have ended.

As Microsoft announced previously, there will be no more security updates or technical support for Windows XP operating systems after April 8, 2014. Hoping to allay concerns, Microsoft has clarified that some of its XP embedded product line will have extended support until 2019. As a Windows Embedded Partner, DFI will be assisting customers in migrating to other XP-based operating systems without changing applications; as well as help those who would like to adopt the latest OS and technologies to stay secure.

Windows Embedded Standard 2009 is an updated release of the toolkit and componentized version of Windows XP. It was originally released in 2008, and its extended support will end on January 8, 2019. Migrating to Windows Embedded Standard 2009 is the best choice for customers who do not want to change their applications but still need long-term technical support.

To maximize investments and strategically plan for the future, DFI provides the latest Windows 7 and Windows 8 solutions for  intelligent embedded systems requiring longevity and reliability.
