End of Windows XP Support is April 8: Resources for Modernizing your RAD Studio, Delphi and C++Builder apps

On April 8, 2014 Microsoft will end support for Windows XP, one of the most popular operating systems ever. Industry experts estimate that Windows XP is still being used on nearly 30% of PCs. An estimated 500 million computers, kiosks, ATMs and other systems are still running XP. A massive shift forward to newer versions of Windows is expected this year with the end of support.


Embarcadero has put together a set of resources to help you make sure your RAD Studio, Delphi and C++Builder applications are ready for this change and take advantage of all of the latest technologies and OS advancements.

That's a great resource. Thanks for pointing it out. It would be good for people to look at both; the Microsoft page to see the user experience guidelines for Windows and the Embarcadero page for more info on Delphi and C++Builder specific items like language features, Unicode enabling VCL apps, and new technologies in the IDE like FireDAC and LiveBindings.
