After announcing the imminent death of Windows XP, it looks like Microsoft is continuing its efforts to push consumers to use the latest version of its operating system – Windows 7. The company has announced on its official blog that as of July 12th, Windows Vista Service Pack 1 is no longer supported. While support for Windows Vista is still around, users will have to upgrade their operating systems to SP2 (which is something they should have done a long time ago).
But users are encouraged to upgrade to Windows 7 (although rumors of Windows 8 arriving next year will probably make people hold out for the upgrade). How many of you are still using Windows Vista, and what’s stopping you from making the switch to Windows 7?
