Windows XP Support Ending: Pop-ups Coming

Tom Warren at The Verge:

Microsoft is planning to use pop-up warnings to entice Windows XP users to upgrade. The software maker is ending support of XP on April 8th, and will start distributing notices next week to machines running the 12-year-old operating system. Pop-up warnings will appear on March 8th following the monthly patch cycle of Windows Update, and the notification will include a link to Microsoft’s Windows XP end of support site.

Why do I get the feeling that there’s going to be a sudden upswing in electronic signage, cash registers & ATMs inadvertently showing the Windows XP desktop come next week?
