End of the road: Microsoft terminates support for Windows Vista today

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.

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.

Happy Second Anniversary of Vista's EOL Everyone! :party:

It's the same way on the Windows 8 Forums too. In fact, before today, there wasn't even a post about the new Canary release of Microsoft Edge running on Windows 8x.

The biggest Windows 6.0 news is actually that the April 2019 rollup changes the build number to 6.0.6003. I have thus far shied away from it, not wishing to explore possible program compatibility issues when no one here seems to value a patched OS anyway (although there is much interest in patches for old versions of MS Office at the moment). I no longer use Vista for web browsing anyway.
