Support is ending for...

Support has


for Windows Vista.
Microsoft is now only supporting Vista for security issues and will cease all support of its most unsuccessful operating system since Windows XP, in all its variants in a few years. Whether you're using Vista Basic, Home Premium, Pro or Ultimate, support ends on April the 11th 2017.
Well, what it does mean is that any vulnerability found after this date will not be fixed by Microsoft, so third party solutions will have to be used. Keeping a good Security Package running at all times will be a must.
Another point is that Microsoft is not making new software to run on Vista. Microsofts Office 2013 is one such example, this will not install and run on Vista. So third party alternatives will have to be used or stick with older versions that may not be 100% compatible with the latest ones.
What it does not mean is that your Vista operating system will stop working on this day.
Windows Vista will probably live on after Microsoft's support has ended. Vista support will continue if third-party software makers continue supporting it. And they are only going to support it if Vista users continue to buy their software.
For Microsoft it will be the end of its least popular OS. But it does mean that all the resources spent on keeping an old system running can now be utilized in other areas.
Microsoft wants all users of its old operating systems to abandon them and upgrade to one of its new Operating Systems currently that’s Windows 8. By doing this it will create new cash from its dead Operating Systems.
