Ubisoft plans to drop Vista support from future versions of UPlay

 
Ubisoft now plans to drop official Windows Vista support from future versions of UPlay, due to the OS' move to legacy support from Microsoft. Windows Vista user will still be able to access their content on UPlay but will be unable to get any client updates.  
 
Those that are using Vista are urged to upgrade to a newer, more secure operating system, as from April 11th Microsoft will stop issuing any security updates for the platform. This will lead to vulnerabilities if/when new exploits are discovered within the aging OS.
