Windows Vista Is Dead! + Ryzen 5 Processors Announced! + Cool Tech You Missed This Week

Microsoft is finally pulling support for Windows Vista after 10 years, their typical OS life cycle. It is among the least used Windows OS versions, even behind the older XP. Anyone still using Vista after April 11th will no longer get any security patches, making you extremely vulnerable to exploits.

Huh? Windows 10?

Hmm. What are the guys over at Microsoft really up to? Recently, I heard that they that they were going to skip Windows 9 and go directly to Windows 10; at first, I thought that it was a rumour; but it is official; I read about it on The Escapist Magazine.

After eagerly awaiting the arrival of Windows 9 for so long, Microsoft decides to re-brand their new and upcoming OS and call it, Windows 10.

It is alleged that there were concerns pertaining to the contradictory code in third party products; something to do with legacy programming conflicts; to put it simply:

Some of those programs would have problems interacting with Windows 9, because they would have been under the false impression that they were dealing with Windows 95 or 98 (Hmm. Is anyone else confused about this? Because, I know that I am).

As far as I am concerned, all of the operating systems that Microsoft launched after Windows XP were filled with technical glitches.

As I have said in a past post, I am not one of those people who are eager to install a new operating system on my computer, whenever it it is launched on the market; because there are always technical issues in the incipient stages (It's as though Microsoft willingly launches their operating system knowing that there are faults within it and they send their users patches to their problematic operating system as time goes along; that is a lot of trouble to endure).

Microsoft is claiming that Windows 10 is going to be the best version of Windows (I guess that we will have to wait and see).

For the record, I have nothing against Microsoft; it's just that I am a bit sceptical about their claims; I have been using Windows since in the days of Windows XP and I have had many issues with Windows Vista and a small handful of issues (which I have rectified) with Windows 8 and Windows 8.1; therefore, it is a bit hard for me to believe that their new and upcoming OS is going to be the best ever from Microsoft).
