Bye-Bye Windows Vista

Windows Vista will disappear from Microsoft’s list of supported software in just four weeks. As the successor to Windows XP, Vista promised a lot but delivered little.

Released just over ten years ago, this much maligned OS has survived for a while. To be honest, I’d almost consigned it to the same dark place in my memory as Windows ME.

Extended support ends on 11 April 2017.

Microsoft says “Windows Vista customers will no longer receive new security updates, non-security hotfixes, free or paid assisted support options, or online technical content updates” after the deadline.

Farewell Windows Vista.
