"Mainstream" support for Microsoft's ill-received Vista operating system has ended today where it has now entered a secondary "Extended Support" stage that lasts until 2017 when the doors will be shut on this operating system for good.

Extended support will still allow users to freely obtain security updates, but if you do not have a commercial support contract you will be hit up for any bug fixes or other patches required.

Meanwhile, XP which is now a full decade old is in the midst of its "Extended Support" stage with its scheduled closure for all forms of support to be in 2014.
