"Windows Vista information with details of Windows Vista features."
WINDOWS VISTA FEATURES
"Windows Vista and the latest release of Microsoft Office feature dramatic graphic enhancements to the interface that make the desktop more visually exciting and significantly easier to use. With simple and intuitive tools, consumers can easily create and share digital documents, photos, music and videos, participate in digital communities, and play online and offline games."
VISTA FOR CONSUMERS
"With Windows Vista, consumers will be able to experience all kinds of entertainment from television to video games to music and movies how and when they want. Keeping in touch with family, friends and colleagues using e mail, voice recording or video will be richer and more convenient. Redesigned user interfaces will increase productivity and ease of use, helping consumers and small businesses produce documents from a marketing plan to a child's birthday invitation that look better and are more professional in less time. Windows Vista and Microsoft Office 2007 will continue to improve access to information with new tools that make it easy to find the right piece of information be it an e mail message, image, note or media clip no matter where it is stored."
VISTA IS FOR HARDWARE
"The consumer launch of Windows Vista is also expected to unleash a flood of new next generation hardware, software and entertainment devices and services. Currently, more than 1.5 million devices and peripherals are on the market that work with Windows Vista, including more than 2,500 that are Certified for Windows Vista. In addition, thousands of PC manufacturers and system builders around the globe will deliver the Windows Vista operating system and Microsoft Office 2007 on new PCs."
VISTA IS UNLEASHED
"Microsoft also kicked off its global television, Web, and out of home and theater advertising campaigns encouraging people to see the wow of Windows Vista. The global campaign will reflect the exciting possibilities that Windows Vista will deliver to customers around the world. Microsoft has mobilized employees including executives, engineers, developers and product managers to spend the launch day assisting salespeople at retail stores across the United States. Retailers around the world are providing special offers and opportunities to shoppers on the first day of general product availability."
VISTA SUPPORT IS ENDING
"After April 11, 2017, Windows Vista customers will no longer receive new security updates, non-security hotfixes, free or paid assisted support options, or online technical content updates from Microsoft. Microsoft has provided support for Windows Vista for the past 10 years, but the time has come for us, along with our hardware and software partners, to invest our resources towards more recent technologies so that we can continue to deliver great new experiences."
"Microsoft has also stopped providing Microsoft Security Essentials for download on Windows Vista. If you already have Microsoft Security Essentials installed, you'll continue to receive antimalware signature updates for a limited time. However, please note that Microsoft Security Essentials (or any other antivirus software) will have limited effectiveness on PCs that do not have the latest security updates. This means that PCs running Windows Vista will not be secure and will still be at risk for virus and malware."
