The day has finally arrived. Mark April 13th 2010 in your calendars as the day Windows Vista RTM has seen its last official support from Microsoft. No surprise here as it has been planned and discussed for a few months.
Windows Vista was released to the world back on 30 January 2007 – just a little more than 3 years ago. Since then Service Packs 1 and 2 have been released to update the original release version and now we come to this day when official support is over for that original version of Windows Vista.
As long as you have at least Service Pack 1 installed then you can still get updates for security, etc.
So where do you go from here? A couple of suggestions to make sure you taken care of:
- Which service pack am I running?
- Get more details about Windows Vista end of support.
- What does end of support mean?
Whatever you do you need to at least get the latest service pack update if your going to stay on Windows Vista.
