Microsoft ditches Vista

14 April, 2010

What? The operating system that was going to change the world?  The one that would compete with Apple? The one that everyone would want to use?

Its passing is such sweet sorrow. (Sorry I’m getting mixed up with Twitter Romeo & Juliet here.) I remember when it came in and one of our clients was having to pre-install Windows XP over the top of Vista to make any sales.  Then it all settled down and millions around the world had to buy Vista operated PCs as that was all on offer. So what happens just over three years down the line? Microsoft dumps them in it with no support or security updates.

Nice one Bill – the hackers’ friend
