Yesterday, April 13th, marked the end of the road for Windows Vista RTM.

It's that time again...what time is that, you ask? Could it be the U.S. April 15th Tax Deadline? Spring Break? Daylight Saving Time? No, it's not any of those. But it is the second Tuesday in April, which means it's time for certain Microsoft products to reach the end of support.

This time, Windows Vista with no service packs installed (sometimes referred to as RTM or SP0) will be reaching end of support on April 13th.

What does that mean for users still running this OS? Well, basically this means that Microsoft will no longer provide any more security fixes for that OS. You've reached the end of the road.

So, what do you do? Well, you either need to download and apply Service Pack 2 (or the earlier Service Pack 1 if you feel like it), or upgrade the OS to Windows 7. Or make the leap to Mac ... or Linux ...

Flowers or tributes? Put them in the TalkBack section!
