The writing has been on the wall for quite some time for Microsoft’s venerable Windows XP operating system already, but this does not mean that folks have taken the step to make an upgrade from that reliable OS to Windows 7 or Windows 8. Perhaps one would need more convincing to make the upgrade jump, and Microsoft has done their bit to make sure that large businesses “get the message” in order to upgrade from Windows XP to Windows 7 or Windows 8 prior to the support deadline of April 8, 2014. It seems as though the folks over at Dell, too, want to do their bit in promoting Windows XP users to make the operating system upgrade through a new ad that you can see above.
This particular clip does seem to be targeting IT managers specifically, especially those who have delayed on their respective companies’ Windows upgrade plans. The animated video touts that workers in the IT department are able to leave the upgrade process to Dell’s Windows Migration Services, where it is touted to help businesses save both time and money – something that the higher management always loves to hear, regardless of how their own Windows XP upgrade plans are at right now.
