If you are still on Windows Vista, it's time to upgrade as Microsoft has now announced that it will drop the support for the OS which was initially launched back in 2006. The company decided that, with Microsoft officially pulling the plug on Vista, it was no longer feasible continue to update the Uplay PC client for the (now) legacy operating system.

End of extended support means Microsoft will no longer provide security updates for the operating system, while automatic fixes, feature requests, warranty claims, and online technical assistance ended with the end of mainstream support. The ride is over.

The company is said to bidding farewell to Windows Vista after more than 10 years since its launch.

Windows Vista PCs will still work but they will be more vulnerable to security risks because Microsoft will no longer be providing any security patches that protect it from the latest threats. Despite its problems, by the time its replacement arrived, Vista had risen to be the second most-widely used operating system in the world, seconded only by its predecessor Windows XP.

Microsoft has been publishing reminders that Windows Vista's end of support date is impending for several months.

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

The importance of Windows Vista can not be overstated.

What are your thoughts about Windows Vista's desolvation?

Open "winver", and then open 'About Windows'. Enterprises with more than 1,000 employees are less likely to use Vista PCs, with a penetration rate of 9 percent, and small businesses with less than 50 employees are least likely to use Vista, with a penetration rate of only 7 percent.

Even computers that debuted in time with Vista struggled, and I have uncomfortable memories of trying to get it to even work on Wi-Fi at the time.

The operating system has a history of bad experiences.

But you should never be too nostalgic over operating systems. The company had ambitious goals for its Windows Vista during the period prior to its launching, among them a new Windows Future Storage (WinFS) filing system.
