Windows Vista R Has Reached "End of Support"

If you are still running the RTM version of Vista, Microsoft is giving you a good reason to go Vista SP 2, it has now officially hit “End of Support” status.  We here at ToT think you would  be doing yourself a bigger favor by going out buying yourself an upgrade to Windows 7.

End of Support means you can no longer receive support benefits from Microsoft and will need to upgrade to a supported service pack (Windows Vista SP1 or Windows Vista SP2) to continue receiving security updates, hotfixes or assisted support from Microsoft.   Staying on a supported service pack is the only way to ensure continued access to security updates and the ability to escalate support issues within Microsoft.

In addition to the end of support, Microsoft also announced changes to the Service Pack Support policy.   The revised policy allows Microsoft support professionals to make best effort to provide limited break/fix troubleshooting to customers on unsupported service packs, even without custom support contracts, and help them migrate to a supported service pack. Microsoft requires customers to transition to a supported service packs to receive hotfixes, security updates, time zone updates, or access to sustained engineering.
