These notifications will remind users that after April 8th, Microsoft will no longer be pushing security updates, which may leave users vulnerable to new threats to their system.

Whether this will be enough to move people away from what's still the second most popular operating system currently used remains to be seen, users should at the very least be aware of what this means for them.
