Where is Windows Vista still being used after April 11, 2017

Post by nknight »

This topic is going to keep a record of when you are out in public and you see Windows Vista being used in the public such as hotels, hospitals, bank, etc. Please post it here because I want to know where it is still being used in the public.

MJR Southgate Digital Cinema in southgate, mi is using windows vista. 1 of the advertisement computers that hang on the wall had a error message with vista desktop in the background. I couldn't help but laugh when I saw the error.

There's a Pets at Home shop near where I live that still uses Windows Vista; the staff even use Internet Explorer 9, rather than a better, still supported browser like Firefox. I mean, it's still mostly usable, but many pages don't display or work properly. The staff were also too lazy to change the wallpaper to something different. They usually connect to a server running 2012 R2, so I don't often get to see Vista itself.

My high school was using Vista on all their PCs until they installed Xubuntu on most of them a few months back. A few PCs, like our POS system for lunches, still run Vista though.

Most likely not that much people in my neighborhood use Windows vista, or I have to be the only one.

Several of the computers at my office run Windows Vista Business. They didn't upgrade because many of the proprietary software they built runs only on Vista and never upgraded. Plus, they don't want to upgrade to 8 or 10 because of the IT department say the two suck for anything other than home use and they weren't very happy to learn about 10's mandatory updates.

I know a friend (who lives a few miles away from me) who still uses Vista (SP2 I think) on his computer because the computer came with Vista pre-installed-- and he doesn't have the time or desire to update it to a newer version of Windows.

Almost certainly not.
Windows Defender for great justice! Bugs are an international trading company. I need to defeat the anti-debugging and obfuscation methods. It wasn't for Intel's absurd ability to load in ie6. Why even waste time with people in an envelope?

A guy that owns a local phone repair shop is running Windows Vista on his laptop and loves it more than his personal Windows 7 on his laptop.

A PC on my local post office is also running Vista, but via Remote Desktop.

Sometimes the ATMs are crashing and are showing only desktoo or boot screen or whatever.

Here in Bulgaria, where I live, there are a lot of older ATMs that continuously crash and all of them are using Windows NT4.0.

I found out that the drive thru machines used windows nt 4 or 5 at the McDonald’s restaurants near me. The atms near me still run xp or windows fundamentals for legacy PCs .

I still use it in a Boot Camp setup on my MacBook so I have a Windows setup should I need it. I prefer the look and feel of it over any other version of Windows.

As far as I know, most of the schools in here are using Pentium 4-based XP SP2 machines (not SP3), with a few Vista machines (Core 2 Duo based) thrown in the mix in some classes.

ATMs here use something that resembles DOS, though I don't know if it's just a GUI designed that way or if they actually run a command-line based interface.
