April 8, 2014: The date when Microsoft stops providing support (including critical security patches) for Windows XP Service Pack 3.

Currently, more than 30% of all computers (including many large corporations' workstations) run Windows XP. After the Salish Apocalypse, any new vulnerabilities that are discovered will not be patched by Microsoft. This means that XP users will be living in a permanent zero-day environment, and companies that still refuse to upgrade will be easy prey for criminals and anarchists.
"I don't get how so many companies can still be refusing to upgrade to Windows 7 or 8. I bet there are fifty guys around the world sitting on zero-day exploits just waiting for the Salish Apocalypse. It's going to suck."
