End of Vista support

windows-vista-logoSupport for Microsoft’s Windows Vista operating system will end on April 11, 2017; Microsoft won’t publish public security patches anymore for Windows Vista after the Patch Tuesday in April 2017.

Windows Vista is currently in the so-called extended support phase. Microsoft divides the support period of its operating systems into mainstream and extended support phases.

Mainstream support refers to the first five years of product availability. The product may receive new features and updates in that period of time next to security updates.

When a product enters extended support phase after five years, only security updates are provided for it at this point in time. While Microsoft may push out other updates to the operating system, it is not mandatory anymore.

When extended support ends, only paying (Enterprise) customers may get another support extension. It marks the end of support for all Home users.
