After a long over stayed welcome Microsoft will finally end support for Windows Vista starting April 11,2017.

Windows Vista, an operating system introduced to PC users in 2006, was supposed to be the amazing predecessor to Windows XP, but with new systems also came new annoyances. Vista introduced alerts that came up whenever a user wanted to make changes to anything. The alert almost always interrupted the work flow of any PC user. Many users hated the operating system, preferring to stick with the previous OS Windows XP. With many people still using Windows XP the life span continued from 2001 all the way to 2014. Windows XP was such a great OS that we installed it on some of our computers here in the office. Until we got that free update to Windows 10 (Thanks Microsoft!).

While Most users disliked the OS, Vista also introduced features like DirectX 10 for multimedia, and a more simplified Windows Update system.

Windows Vista was replaced by Windows 7 in 2009. Which then replaced by also much hated Windows 8 in 2012. Which was then replaced by improved Windows 8.1 in 2013.

Most PC users now should be updated to the new Windows 10 by now, which in my opinion is one of Microsoft’s better OS since XP.

With Microsoft getting ready for the future of gaming with their recently revealed specs for Project Scorpio, Let us know in the comments if you are one of the few that still uses Vista. Also let us know if you are excited for Microsoft and their upcoming plans.
