Microsoft: officially shuts down Windows Vista support


Microsoft today announced the official support shutdown of Windows Vista, a 10 operating system last year, and can be seen as a company failure.

In a new release in the company support forum, Microsoft announced that 11 in April of 2017 will no longer receive updates and hotfixes for security issues. The company also reported that it stops any support options for free or for a fee.

"Microsoft has been providing support for Windows Vista for the past 10 years, but the time has come to invest our resources in the latest technologies so that we can continue to deliver great new experiences."

Vista users will be able to continue using their system after expiration, but developers will gradually cease to develop software for the platform. Of course there will be a risk of falling into various security vulnerabilities.

Microsoft also announced that it would "stop downloading Microsoft Security Essentials software" for Vista.

If you are one of those who have a Windows Vista system, Microsoft advises you to upgrade to Windows 10.

As for us, better try Linux, open source, free and much more secure.
