While you may not be based in Australia, your local Microsoft subsidiary should have something similar, or alternatively, just take a look at the Australian site. Don’t worry, there won’t be any dingoes, crocodiles, snakes or spiders. This site is about keeping you protected, not about exposing you to creatures that want to bite and/or eat you.

First up is the Microsoft Australian Australia EOL site for XP which can be found here. It includes links to the free Laplink PCMover software for moving from XP to 7,8 or 8.1, along with upgrade options and new PC options to consider. The other useful list for your less than prepared friends is the frequently asked question list.

If you’ve got questions for the Microsoft Australia staff about Windows XP EOL or just to pick up a few tips, head across to their Facebook page and on Twitter.
