Microsoft has finally ended support of the much maligned Windows Vista. The operating system made its debut 10 years ago now, and was met with huge resistance and even worse reviews.
This end of support for Vista simply means that it will no longer see any security updates or bug fixes. Those still running Vista (for whatever reason) will be able to continue without interference; and will run the risk of being unprotected against any future security problems.
Windows Vista was designed to have a new innovative interface. One that made heavy use of graphics that extended boot times and functioned sluggishly on all but the most expensive computers.
Most of our readers will have likely already moved away from Windows Vista, or even avoided it completely. However, some enterprise and corporate systems may still be stuck on it due to the general lack of upgrades that goes around in business IT. If anything, this announcement is simply a reminder for those people to get moving and catch up with the rest of the world.
