First service pack of the infamous OS version put on life support.

Microsoft is looking to pull the plug on its lackluster operating system Windows Vista SP1 on July 12, 2011. The news comes via TheWindowsClub which states:

“Windows Vista users must upgrade their Service Pack to continue to be eligible for Mainstream Support on Windows Vista. Once support ends for Windows Vista SP1, users who have not upgraded to a support service pack will not have access to new security updates, non-security hotfixes, or the option to engage Microsoft product development resources.”

Microsoft had killed support for Windows Vista RTM last year on April 13.
