Thanks for the info. Already Vista x64 meets only the minimum system requirements for GTA V, not the recommended requirements. Browser support for Vista is virtually nonexistent already (yes old browser versions still work, but no more updates for Vista or XP), and antivirus support is also vanishing rapidly.

Win 7 goes EoL in 18 months or thereabouts - in January 2020 - and Win 8.1 two years later in January 2023. It is probably worth your while thinking in terms of Win 10. The problem with that approach is that your existing hardware will almost certainly run Win 7 but may not run 10. But whichever way you go you are going to have to buy a new OS licence.
The worst thing about the marketing approach that the OEMs took to Vista was that, especially at first release, there were an awful lot of 'Vista ready' computers on the market which weren't ready at all. Probably more than anything else this is what got Vista its bad reputation. But look on the bright side - you have been given six months notice to start saving your pennies, bawbees, nickels and dimes for a new computer !
