These issues and others led many XP users to skip Vista entirely. Technology has moved on - as have security issues - so jumping ship to a newer OS is definitely a wise move, and despite its faults, Windows 10 is a definite improvement over Windows Vista. Windows 10 now has 9% of the overall share, followed by Windows 8 at 5%. After today, any extended support for the operating system will be ended.
Microsoft took those lessons onboard and Windows 7 and all subsequent Microsoft OS releases came with a much smaller system footprint.
If you are still on Windows Vista, it's time to upgrade as Microsoft has now announced that it will drop the support for the OS which was initially launched back in 2006.
In fact, while Windows XP still enjoys 8% of desktop market share despite support having been discontinued in 2014, Vista can only be found on 0.78% of desktops. Microsoft stopped its mainstream support for Vista in 2012 but provided limited support to the ones who were still using it until today.
As of Tuesday April 11th, support for Windows Vista has ended. This means certain items will no longer be compatible with the software.
So, where do Vista users go from here?
Well, Vista users can opt to continue to use an increasingly unsafe operating system, or they can upgrade their PC to a newer Microsoft OS. It will also add Game Mode, which is created to make any PC game run and perform faster by allocating more of a PC's hardware resources to those titles. The ancient OS, which Microsoft stopped supporting in 2014, now has 7.44 percent share, making it the third most popular version of Windows after 7 and 10.

Even worse is that Vista users could potentially have to pay for two operating system upgrades: (one to Windows 7 and then one to Windows 10). Remember the first time you logged on to see rolling green fields, or fired up the Pinball game?
Microsoft also explains what happens if users continue to use Windows Vista. Since it is focusing on this operating system it was only a matter of time before Windows Vista was gone.
More than 10 years after it debuted, Microsoft is finally bidding farewell to its Windows Vista platform.
