Office365_Aug28_CSmall business owners generally operate with the slimmest of margins, so any decrease in operating costs or overheads are more than welcome. Small margins also means making do with what technology you have, even if it’s dated. When Microsoft released Office 365, many small businesses adopted this system, however, an announced update will drop support for Microsoft’s older operating systems.

At a recent event centered around the latest version of Microsoft Office, Steve Ballmer, CEO of Microsoft announced that Office 365 will no longer be compatible with Microsoft Windows XP and Vista.

Times, they are a-changin’
At the event, Microsoft unveiled the most up-to-date version of Office 365, complete with a touch based user interface, increased cloud support and better integrated social functions. While it certainly looks like a great update, users of legacy OSs (Windows Vista, XP, etc.) will have to upgrade if they want to use this new version of Office 365 which is scheduled for release in early 2013.

If your business has been putting off upgrading from Windows XP or Vista to Windows 7 and wants to continue to use Microsoft’s project, it may be time to look into upgrading. It can be a complicated process to upgrade and many small businesses value being able to use outside help to get them on track more easily.
