Windows XP in the Workplace

There is a trend with operating systems that is not uncommon in most industries. Unlike most PC users, most industries will use an operating system for much longer. A common PC user will frequently upgrade their system to the newest operating system, the moment it is either released or at least affordable. In many industries, though, this is not the case.

There are reasons for this. For one, each operating system requires somewhat new training for all the employees who use it. For another, the infrastructure on networks, databases and file structures need to be change for each and every upgrade as well. Most developers of operating systems try to be courteous enough to make the transition painless, but combining the cost and the difficulty of moving, and it's unlikely that most industries, saving the computer industry itself, will move until absolutely necessary.

Considering this, when working in many industries in the office, or just about anywhere else, it's highly likely that you will encounter Windows XP at this point. While you may have some familiarity with such operating systems as Vista and Windows 7, these are not as common in the workplace just yet. There are other reasons why Windows XP is still widely implemented, though.

Windows XP is actually a rather stable operating system. It successfully took the ease-of-use that Windows 98 provided, and added ease of network integration and stability unlike any operating system before it. Not only is it powerful as a desktop system for one's home, but it is also rather useful in offices.

The fact that Windows XP is so widely integrated means that many offices and other industries will require a Windows XP certification. This isn't necessarily a prerequisite with companies, but it certainly does help when one is looking for a job, job security, or at the very least a promotion.

That in mind, there are many ways to obtain a certification in Windows XP.

That said, online certification is probably the best way to go. Online certification allows one to take the course through an e-book in the comfort of their own home, by their own schedule. It also allows the test to be taken from the comfort of one's home, on one's own schedule. No classroom, or other do it yourself kit can offer this kind of convenience. 

However, it's important to keep in mind that the company you select your online certification from does weigh in severely and how effective it will be when practically applied. So, when choosing one's online certification, especially with a Windows XP test, bear in mind the quality of the provider.
