Navy signs $9.1 million contract with Microsoft to keep Windows XP afloat
23 June 2015, 6:11 pm



There is no denying that Windows XP was a major success for Microsoft. Businesses around the world helped to turn it into one of the most popular operating systems ever. Now, as the rollout of Windows 10 approaches, and with Windows XP officially dead, its zombie still causes headaches for the software giant, and businesses across the globe, including the US Navy.

Indeed, the dependence of the US Navy on the continued existence of Windows XP is such that the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command (SPAWAR) has signed a $9.1 million contract with Microsoft to continue supporting its particular flavor of the operating system until it can realistically transfer to something else. The task of switching is no easy one however, as reported on Ars Technica.
