Microsoft has announced the end of software support for Windows Vista SP1. Vista has had many documented issues and has not been well received by computer users worldwide. Vista’s days were numbered as soon as the operating system hit the shelves. The OS had many complaints form the start. Many Microsoft users reverted to Windows XP immediately and never gave Vista a second look.
Since the release of Vista, Microsoft launched Windows 7 in an effort to produce a more stabile operating system for its customer base. Even though Windows 7 has sold over 400 million copies, Windows XP is far head of Windows 7 in terms of market share.
Currently, Windows 7 holds a 26% market share and Windows XP holds a 52% market share. Windows Vista holds a mere 10%.
