We’ve just posted the following news: Only 1 year of security patches left for Windows Vista users[newsimage]http://www.myce.com/wp-content/images_posts/2009/07/vista-670x502.jpg[/newsimage]

Microsoft will end support for Windows Vista on this day next year. The company will no longer release security patches for the OS on the 11th of April 2017. Vulnerabilities and other issues will remain unfixed and computers running the OS are advised to stay away from the internet.

One of two OSes I simply could not get to work… a three month workbench before I gave it up and headed back to XP… fyi, the other was Windows ME (Not counting Windows 95c).

As I see it, having one year to install whatever better OS instead can’t be bad… Check out Linux Mint which is free and works, or fork out money for ‘Microsoft Windows Spy 10’ which probably will fail on your hardware - then install Mint, pick a choice :bigsmile:

“Vista will suffer the same faith as Windows XP of which support ended 2 years ago, in April 2014. The operating system will still work and won’t be restricted after that date but it can no longer be considered secure.”

LOL, pardon the hysteric laughter and my rolling on the floor.

No version of Windows can be considered secure, as evidenced by Microsoft’s near daily “security” patches.

Truth is that every version of Windows from Win 286 to the present has had more bugs in it at it’s inception than the Amazon and more holes
than the Titanic.

BTW, 3 machines still humming nicely on XP, new Win 10 machine had OS throughly nuked and replaced with Mint.

That is true but then we all go home and guess what we fire up … “WINDOWS”… that is the biggest joke on us from Microsoft…
