Windows Vista Is Now Dead: Here's How To Upgrade To Windows 10

Microsoft

Indeed, Spiceworks' data shows Windows XP is running on 14 percent of all PCs in businesses worldwide, while Vista is only running on 1 percent.

Now, ten years after Microsoft unveiled the operating system, the firm is finally bidding it farewell.

More than 10 years after its launch, Microsoft is finally laying to rest the much-unloved Windows Vista.

If, for whatever reason, you still use Vista, now is the time to stop.

Windows Vista was eventually replaced by Windows 7 in 2009 and is survived by Windows 8, Windows 8.1 and Microsoft's most recent operating system, Windows 10. If you see "Windows Vista", well, it's time to move on.

Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) is reported ending the Windows Vista era. The OS will no longer receive security updates, non-security hotfixes, free or paid assisted support options, or online technical content updates. "If you continue to use Windows Vista now that support has ended, your computer will still work but it might become more vulnerable to security risks and viruses".

It's somewhat unlikely many users are still running the OS, as a number of security concerns along with poor speed optimisation led to the OS being mercilessly canned by the technology community.

After all, it did have that thing where you could make.mpeg video files into Wallpaper, and then you could still open Calculator in under a week.

Another issue was that Windows XP-the previous version of Windows-worked well, so many users chose to stick with it way beyond its expiration date.

Microsoft has officially ended support for the much-malignant Windows Vista OS, which was launched in January 2007. This probably explains why when I told someone I worked for Windows Vista: The Official Magazine, they asked if my parents were proud of me.

As noted by Microsoft in a blog post, today's release of the Windows 10 Creators Update will bring a host of new features and improvements to the OS. This marks the end of an era for an operating system which arrived late in the market and welcomed with widespread criticisms. However, they are facing bigger headache on January 14, 2020, which is the end of life date for Windows 7, which are installed in nearly half of the world's computers.
