Here at CMIT Solutions of Fairfax, we take pride in the work we do and, often even more so, how we do it.

Microsoft is not shy about nudging its business customers into the future. Whether it was the all-out blitz of last year’s death of Windows XP campaign, or this year’s ongoing effort to ease enterprises away from Windows Server 2003, the message comes across loud and clear: when Microsoft stops supporting a product, you really don’t want to be left using it.
We all use USB drives, handing them back and forth like digital business cards and plugging unfamiliar ones into our computer all the time.
