Windows Vista is the operating system released in January 2007, as a successor to Windows XP. It was intended for PCs, workstations and laptops, and shares the same code base as its successor, Windows 7. As a result, questions and answers asked of Windows Vista are mostly interchangeable with those of Windows 7. Differences are mostly minor, such as file menus and the wording of dialogs.
Windows Vista, originally with the codename of Longhorn and Mojave before public release, was Microsoft's follow up to Windows XP.
It has been succeeded by Windows 7
