I am not in the habit of bumping old Vista News items, but this is a special day! This discussion should have been a thread in the Windows Updates section of the forums. There has actually never been such a thread there - until now: Windows 6.0 Updates: 2 Years after Vista's "EOL". I am already beginning to understand how Jody felt regarding the lack of interest, as the most active gurus here are currently busy collecting patches that are 2 to 10 years old.We have liftoff. Server 2008 updates have been successfully installed on Vista. We'll seek out the .NET updates, but I don't anticipate any issues. So it appears we're good to go (hopefully until January 2020, but we'll take it a month at a time).
I'm hopeful that some interest will be renewed in this forum, since this definitely extends the longevity of Vista for devoted users.
