'Also, as more software and hardware manufacturers continue to optimise for more recent versions of Windows, you can expect to encounter more apps and devices that do not work with Windows Vista'.

Vista was launched in 2007 as the long-awaited successor to Windows XP. Sadly, Windows Vista not only failed the company but also the expectant customers who were eagerly waiting for Microsoft to weave magic again.

The company announced the end of Vista in a blog post on its website. Windows 10 is the only desktop version of the OS still available for sale, and may not be compatible with older graphics adapters, too.

Update: And that's it. Windows Vista is now officially unsupported. When it finally was released, users immediately ran into issues with its high system requirements, along with missing or incomplete drivers on many PCs and third-party hardware.

Most users will likely go ahead and upgrade their machine to Windows 10 if it's now stuck on Windows Vista. Or if you prefer something you can hold, Microsoft offers a USB Flash Drive installer with free shipping (delivery time of 3-7 days).
