Hi,

What Windows XP end of Life means to PCI and why now   Microsoft has announced that it will continue to offer antimalware updates for Windows XP for another full year, till april 2015.

 Should i start planing on Decommissioning all my XP based terminals ?

Thanks in advance for your comments.

Xp is a good and stable OS.
The end of MS support will not make it useless.
Consider third party antivirus / antimalware softwares to continue to protect your security when MS ends support.

PCI will not be affected:

Plan?  Absolutely. Start last week so that you can put together a full plan and get approval with budget.

Credit cards will be around long after XP. So you REALLY do need to plan. Plan for replacement credit card processing as well as new systems.
