According to Statcounter figures at the beginning of the year it showed that Microsoft Windows Vista operating system still had over ten per cent of the global operating system market, which is still a huge amount. However, today is the day when Microsoft withdraws Full Support, effectively it is the countdown to the end of Vista in around two years time! For some users of this operating system today is not a sad day for Vista has never been one of those operating systems to celebrate.
Stella Chernyak wrote a post on the Windows Blog the other day, it explains everything that is about to happen to Vista and why;
Back in October we celebrated the anniversaries of Windows XP and Office 2003 and took the opportunity to remind everyone that on April 8, 2014, we will officially end support for these versions of Windows and Office. Today, we want to acknowledge the two-year countdown to the end of Windows XP and Office 2003 support, which was this past Sunday. If you still have some PCs running Windows XP and Office 2003 in your organization, now would be a good time to start migrating them to Windows 7 and Office 2010.
Did you use Vista, maybe you still are, so what operating system will you be switching too?
