Microsoft Finally Says Goodbye to Windows Vista

As hinted back in March, Windows Vista has now reached the end of its road. The 0.72 percent who are still using that OS for some bizarre reason should probably upgrade, as Microsoft has officially terminated extended support. Some of you seem to have very fond memories of Vista, so I won’t bash it like every other article out there.

آ…it’s easy to point out the bad parts of Windows Vista, [but] its release did many good things for Windows. A new search interface provided a strong foundation for Windows 7, Windows 8, and Windows 10, and many of the Start menu changes and design choices that still exist in Windows 10 today. Microsoft had much bigger ambitions with Vista that failed, but the fundamentals certainly pushed Windows forward in design, functionality, and security.
