Updating from xp to vista
I have a Windows XP desktop and I am updating it to Windows Vista and i have like 6 options to choose from and would just like some suggestion on which one is the best.
All options are same price through my college using Microsoft Dream Spark.
And then you have Vista, with only 2.9% of the market, the user base is quite small when compared to Windows 7 (56%) and Windows 8/8.1 (12.5%) which is likely why Microsoft is passing over the OS when it comes to a smooth upgrade path.
While Microsoft has not officially said when Windows 10 will be released, their next major milestone occurs later this month and Neowin will be there.
Windows XP is still loved by many people, and still runs on millions of PCs and laptops.
But it isn't supported by Microsoft any more and therefore is at risk from viruses and malware that can take advantage of any security holes that remain.
In order to help you, please post the make and model of this computer. It's just a basic home computer for the kids and my fiancé to use. If there are no hardware problems a fresh installation of Windows will make a huge difference.
