Microsoft releases Windows 10 cumulative update 14393.969

Microsoft releases Windows 10 cumulative update 14393.969

Ahead of Vista's launch, Microsoft and hardware partners plugged the new operating system hard.

Today isn't Patch Tuesday - or any kind of Tuesday - but Microsoft has released a new cumulative update for PCs running version 1607, otherwise known as the Anniversary Update.

Microsoft has implemented a new support policy for Microsoft Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 that was announced past year, a recently-revised support document suggests. At which point you'll have to downgrade to Windows XP, or upgrade to Windows 7, Windows 8, or Windows 10.

Microsoft has just announced that Windows 10 will be zealously pushing forced updates even for users who are on metered connections. But why have the "bad" versions of Windows - ME, Vista, and 8 - been so hated? As is Microsoft's way, the company has continued supporting Vista for the last 10 years, but its time is now up.

PCs powered by the latest processors from AMD, Intel and Qualcomm will no longer receive security updates for Windows 7 and Windows 8.1.

It should be noted that this doesn't mean your Vista-powered PC will suddenly stop working. For more, be sure to check out Microsoft's support article. Especially as Microsoft is also ending support for Microsoft Security Essentials on Vista.

Vista was never the star of the Windows family of operating systems: that crown went to Vista's older brother XP, which was much loved and turned out to be a tough act for its successor to follow.

According to NetMarketshare, Windows Vista has a 0.78 percent market share amongst desktop users. It reached its peak in 2010 when it held somewhere between 15 to 26 percent of market share, but Windows 7 had already surpassed it.

Mets to assign Tebow to low Class-A
Tebow, 29, will be up to a decade older than some players he faces, although far less experienced from a baseball standpoint. Elway later went on to win two Super Bowls and make nine Pro Bowls during his 16-year National Football League career.

Regardless, there's still a pang of sadness to see Windows Vista being euthanized. This has serious consequences for both businesses and consumers. "You guys have to do a better job with our customers", Jim Allchin, a veteran from the very earliest days of Windows at Microsoft Division, wrote.

Are you still using Windows Vista?

Windows 8 introduced a dual user interface featuring Metro apps with a flat, modern look that ran full-screen, aimed at tablets that nobody bought. Or downgrading to XP?
