The question that you might have is: what about this extended support that goes until January 2017? Extended support means the following:

The Extended Support phase follows Mainstream Support for Business and Developer products.  At the supported service pack level, Extended Support includes:

  • Paid support
  • Security update support at no additional cost
  • Non-security related hotfix support requires a separate Extended Hotfix Support Agreement to be purchased (per-fix fees also apply)
Please note:
  • Microsoft will not accept requests for warranty support, design changes, or new features during the Extended Support phase
  • Extended Support is not available for Consumer, Hardware, or Multimedia products
  • Enrollment in a maintenance program may be required to receive these benefits for certain products

Better to start planning your migration as part of your new year’s resolution.
