Microsoft officially released its Vista operating system on Tuesday, 10 years after it was first made available to users, which is seen by many users and experts as the worst version of the Windows operating system since the release of Windows ME.

The announcement comes as an announcement by the company on its support forum that as of April 11, the old Vista version of the Windows operating system will not receive upcoming security updates and non-security hotfixes as well as offering no free or paid support options.

“Microsoft has supported its Windows Vista operating system over the last 10 years, but it is time for us, together with our hardware and software manufacturers, to invest our resources in the latest technology so that we can continue to deliver great new experiences.”

Users of Windows Vista can continue to use the operating system after the end of the support, but the opportunity for software makers to create applications dedicated to this version will end gradually, and the risk of becoming victims of various vulnerabilities, viruses and attacks will gradually increase.

Microsoft also told users that it would also stop providing the possibility of downloading its basic security and protection application Microsoft Security Essentials on Vista, and although the company will continue to launch updates for a limited period, but this will make the operating system an easy target for attackers.

The company strongly advises users of Windows Vista to abandon it and switch to the latest version Windows 10 to maintain the security of their devices and information, especially with Windows 10 today received a large amount of new features through the new update “update creators.”

According to the NetMarketShare analysis database, Vista users accounted for 0.72 percent of all users of the various Windows versions until March, where it suffered from intermittent hardware support and lack of support for major hardware components.
