Today Is The Last Day Microsoft Will Offer Windows Vista Support

It's not quite the end for Windows Vista updates though: although Microsoft has also stopped providing Microsoft Security Essentials for download on Windows Vista, if a PC already has Microsoft Security Essentials installed it will continue to receive anti-malware signature updates "for a limited time". The company decided that, with Microsoft officially pulling the plug on Vista, it was no longer feasible continue to update the Uplay PC client for the (now) legacy operating system. Today onwards, the software giant is not going to provide support for the aged operating system. There might also be increased risk of falling victim to various security vulnerabilities and viruses.

Microsoft has just ended support for Windows Vista.

Coming after the highly successful Windows XP, Microsoft Vista arrived in January 30, 2007 packed full of hype and hope, but turned out half-backed.

Additionally, many apps are ending support for Vista anyway so it will become increasingly hard to get a working setup without making some serious sacrifices.

Do you know anyone still using Windows Vista, and if so, do you think the operating system reaching End of Life will matter to them?

The end has finally come for one of the world's most hated pieces of software, Windows Vista. Will your PC suddenly keel over and stop working, now that Windows Vista is no longer getting updated?

But what happens if you decide to stick with Vista after today? It was no surprise then that, within a year of its adoption, it had outpaced Windows Vista. Microsoft hasn't offered any particular bribes to get them on to Windows 10, so will they go to Windows 7, which is far more like what they're used to?

And Your Pal Ched said: 'RIP Windows Vista.awful OS that will not be missed but my first computer ran on Vista and I loved that old thing'. Windows Vista set the scene for Windows 7 to murder Windows XP for good, and for that reason alone, Vista gets 56 thumbs up from me.
