The Windows XP support's end was said to be imminent. Microsoft Japan would aid major insurance companies in the country to move 30,000 XP machines to tablets running the Windows 8 operating system. The move would help corporations to ease the struggles during a transition period.

One of the biggest Japanese insurance corporation, Meiji Yasuda, would team up with Fujitsu and Microsoft Japan. They would all upgrade the computers used by insurance sales workers, Microsoft stated on Wednesday.

The support for XP, one of the most popular OS in the whole world, would end on the 8th day of April, 2014. Microsoft added that Meiji Yasuda would be the first life insurance corporation from Japan to adopt the Windows 8 Pro. The tablets, custom-made by Fujitsu, would permit the sales personnel to immediately create policies for particular customers.

"Previously, the sales team prepared proposals on their Windows XP-based PCs and then printed them out in order to share with customers," Microsoft said.
