End of Support for Windows Vista with No Services Packs

I just wanted to remind readers that  Windows Vista with no Service Packs (also known as RTM) will no longer be supported. We recommend folks running Windows Vista RTM look at upgrading to Windows 7 or using Windows Update to update their PC to the latest service pack available for Windows Vista today – Service Pack 2. For more information on this and a change to our Service Pack Support Policy on providing limited troubleshooting on unsupported service pack versions, see this blog post on the Microsoft Support Lifecycle Blog or visit this end of support page on Windows.com to learn more about how to ensure your PC is on the latest service pack.

This is really a bad news for the users using Windows Vista with no Service Pack. Vista is definitely the worst OS windows have developed. I think windows should offer the OS for free just like Linux  and bsds are. People now are completely abandoned by M$ operating systems and now the pack is not supported means that either they will have to upgrade it to Windows 7 or opt for a different platform which is probably the Linux.
