Yesterday Microsoft announced that they would stop supporting Windows XP within the next 3 years, and now it looks like it is Vista’s turn next, as Microsoft has announced it will stop supporting Windows Vista SP1.
Users will have to upgrade to Windows Vista SP2 to continue receiving support on the OS, although Microsoft suggests it would be better for you to upgrade to Windows 7.
We have heard that Windows 8 will launch next year, near the end of 2012, so Microsoft are obviously trying to get as many people to upgrade to Windows 7 before they launch Windows 8.
