With the Windows XP end of support date now less than a month away, Microsoft is trying to woo users off the ancient 12-year-old operating system. The latest comes in the form of a Microsoft Store deal that offers a $50 gift card, 90-days of free support, and free data transfer with the purchase of a new PC. As always with such offers, however, there are some details worth noting. The $50 digital gift card can only be used towards future purchases at the online Microsoft Store in the US. Free support is hardly anything new for Microsoft Store purchases, though it does cover both phone and chat options. Lastly, the free data transfer option is available to everyone, thanks to a Microsoft partnership with Laplink. In other words, it’s really only the gift card that’s useful in this case, and only if you shop online.
