Microsoft will no longer support Windows Vista
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.
For those using Vistas in enterprise systems, users can still get support but will have to pay for it. IT pros will recognize immediately the utility of getting upgrades for their computers.
All Window operating systems have a life cycle announced in advanced. You can find this information on Window products on Microsoft’s lifecycle fact sheet. According to this lifecycle sheet, Microsoft stopped selling Vista-based computers on October 2011. Windows 7 will die in January, 2020.
Many will say good riddance to Vista because Vista was not well regarded by many. In fact, it is probably the worse operating system of all time because of its slowness and hardware incompatibilities.
