Windows Vista will die on April 11, 2017, well not actually a death but still the same for you. What this means is that Microsoft will stop supporting it. This means that Microsoft will no longer offer no-charge incident support, warranty claims and design fixes for the operating system. More importantly, security updates will end.
It never ceases to amaze me how malware can get into your computer. The other day I was downloading Google Chrome for a customer from a malicious website. I was in a hurry and did not check the website URL. Before I knew it, I had downloaded 75 malware programs and viruses in a few seconds. I then spent the next 15 minutes removing them. It seems that hackers are using malware to take over the cyber world. 8 million new variants per month are infecting computers. That’s right, malware does mutate to catch your computer and anti-virus protection off guard.
Microsoft has announced that the next version of its operating system, Windows 10, is in development and available for preview and to be released soon.
But what happened to Windows 9?
Microsoft doesn’t really answer the question well. Tony Prophet, Microsoft Windows marketing boss says, “It came and it went.” To be honest, skipping around seems to be something Microsoft does. If you remember, there was Microsoft Vista and following that version was Microsoft 7 and then 8. Another point of view for skipping version 9 has been said that it is considered an unlucky number in Japan where Microsoft has a large presence. For whatever true reason Microsoft skipped version 9, I hope version 10 will live up to what Microsoft is selling.
