Last year of Support for Vista

Microsoft's nine-year-old operating system - Windows Vista, will stop receiving updates in exactly one year from now. Luckily for Microsoft, most users abandoned Vista a long time ago when they made the move to the superior Windows 7 and therefore the company won't have to make too much of an effort to convert people to Windows 10.

Last year of Support for Vista

Mainstream support for Vista ended four years ago during April 2012, and has since only been receiving security updates, it didn't even get new versions of Internet Explorer after version 9. With security updates being dropped, users will be much more susceptible to malware and should therefore migrate to a new version of Windows.

Windows Vista was released to the general public at the start of 2007, at the time, it received a lot of condemnation based on the hardware people needed to run the newly introduced Aero theme. Another issue with Vista, which drove people away, was the incessant notifications thrown up by the then-new security feature, User Account Control (UAC).

UAC's purpose was to ensure users knew that they were installing new software, which would supposedly make the installation of malware more difficult. In practice however, it doesn't provide any security because people clicked to continue anyway.

For Vista readers wondering what to do about upgrading, you'll have to buy a license for a copy of Windows 10 or other supported version. Windows 10 is still gratis for users until July 29 but only for those coming from Windows 7 or 8.1.

Wine 1.9.24

Wine is an open source software that enables Linux, Mac, FreeBSD, and Solaris users to run Windows applications without a copy of Microsoft Windows. Wine is free software under constant development. Other platforms may benefit as well.

Wine makes it possible to take advantage of all the Unix strong points (stability, flexibility, remote administration) while still using the Windows applications you depend on. Unix has always made it possible to write powerful scripts. Wine makes it possible to call Windows applications from scripts that can also leverage the Unix environment to its full extent.

Wine makes it possible to access Windows applications remotely, even if they are a few thousand miles away. Wine makes it economical to use thin clients: simply install Wine on a Linux server, and voila, you can access these Windows applications from any X terminal. Wine can also be used to make existing Windows applications available on the Web by using VNC and its Java/HTML5 client.
