Considering that Windows 10 is the latest operating system by Microsoft, it’s not surprising that more and more software is stopping support for older Windows builds. For those who are still on Windows XP or Windows Vista, it seems that come 2019 Valve’s Steam platform will no longer support either version of the operating system.
Some of you probably may not even remember the first generation Apple TV but it goes without saying that it’s an obsolete product and Apple certainly seems to think so. The company has announced that it’s going to drop iTunes support for the original Apple TV from May 25. It’s also going to drop support for PCs running older iterations of Windows.
The latest version of Windows is Windows 10, and if you were on older builds of Windows like Windows 7 or Windows 8, there was a period where Microsoft offered users the chance to upgrade for free, which hopefully many of you guys have taken it.

As it stands both Windows XP and Vista do not have mainstream support from Microsoft. For Vista, extended support is still active until April 11, 2017. By now we would have assumed that many users have switched to at least Windows 7, or ideally Windows 10, but if for some reason you’re still on XP or Vista, not to worry as Mozilla has your back.
