Microsoft will shift Windows Vista and Office 2007 into what it calls extended support over the next two days.

Microsoft retires Vista, Office 2007 from mainstream support this week


From ComputerWorld:
Vista, the problem-plagued operating system that never really took hold among users, will exit mainstream support on Tuesday, April 10. According to Microsoft, Office 2007 leaves mainstream support today.

In a product's extended support phrase, Microsoft continues to provide security patches to all users, but offers other fixes -- such as reliability and stability updates -- only to organizations that have signed support contracts with the company.
