The end is finally here. End to one of the worst pieces of software ever, Microsoft‘s Windows Vista.
Starting from today, April 11, 2017, Microsoft will no longer be supporting Windows Vista, the company announced in a support article. Vista, probably the most hated version of Windows, was released over a decade ago in 2007, five years after Windows XP and two years before Windows 7.
“Microsoft has provided support for Windows Vista for the past 10 years, but the time has come for us, along with our hardware and software partners, to invest our resources towards more recent technologies so that we can continue to deliver great new experiences,” said Microsoft in their article.
While the Vista users will be able to use the operating system after support ends, chances are software-makers will cease to build apps for the platform. And there will also be increased risk of falling victim to various security vulnerabilities.
Adios, Vista. You won’t be missed.
