Hasta la vista, Vista: Microsoft kills the ancient OS
Hasta la vista, Vista.
Windows Vista is finally dead.
Microsoft will no longer give the ten year old operating system any security updates or fixes.
There won't even be the option to pay for extended support.
Poor Vista was never loved as much as Microsoft's other children.
You see, when the operating system first launched in January of 2007 it was the first big update since Windows XP and people thought it looked pretty nifty with windows that had this frosted glass style transparency.
And there was this arrow scene that required a good graphics card because it was visually complex.
And it was a bit unnecessary, cuz it left your computer feeling slow and bloated if it didn't have the latest and fastest hardware.
Not to mention, updating broke a lot of software because it wasn't compatible with everything.
So workplace IT departments We're not upgrading to the new OS and they just skipped over Vista and jumped to Windows 7 after a few years.
There's hardly anyone still using Vista.
According to net market share only a measly .7% of PCs online are using Vista.
Compare that to 7% that are still on Windows XP and 50% using Windows 7 Now Microsoft suggests that if you still use Vista, it's probably time for you to buy a new computer.
Good advice, Microsoft, good advice.
I'm Bridget Carry, and for you Vista users that need advice on what new computer to buy, because dang, it's been ten years and you have some catching up to do, head to cnet.com.
