Windows 8 is officially toast.

Microsoft has pulled the plug on Windows 8’s life support. It told customers they need to upgrade to Windows 8.1 -- or better yet, Windows 10 -- to continue receiving crucial updates and security patches.

Despite a free upgrade to the superior Windows 8.1 two years ago and another free upgrade to the far, far superior Windows 10 in July, 2.6% of PCs around the world still amazingly run Windows 8, according to data tracker Net market share.

With nearly 2 billion PCs in use, that’s an astounding number: Close to 50 million PCs are running Windows 8.

When Windows 8.1 was released in October 2013, Microsoft made it clear to Windows 8 customers that they had two years to upgrade. Microsoft said then it would no longer support the old version of the operating system by 2016.

Windows 8 customers can still use their computers. But without security updates, they will be more susceptible to hacks.
