Unlike Windows XP, there isn't something like Windows Embedded POSReady 2009 that Vista users can switch to. So they either have to go to Windows 7 SP1 (yes I had to add the SP1 part), Windows 8.1 Update 1 (again had to add the Update 1 part) preferably with a start menu , Windows 10 Creators update (like the last 2 I had to add the Creators update part lol). Or a Mac or a Linux distro or basically any OS that is supported on the hardware they're using.
Yeah, I did not switch to Windows Embedded POSReady 2009 after Windows XP support ended. I went from Windows XP to Windows Vista, to Windows 7. Skipping 8 and & 8.1, and went to Windows 10 Home pre-installed on it when I got my new laptop in December 2016...
I didn't switch to anything new I still use XP today as my main OS with anti-virus and ad block just so no one can lead me to viruses.
If you're not a fan of 10 then the best option would be to go 8.1 with classic shell. Really great experience. As browsers abandon XP the OS as a whole will become less useful.
This is my signature.

I always liked Vista even threw I didn't use it that much. Vista had a beautiful interface with glass borders
and a clear new look compared to Windows XP I think if Microsoft had released Vista in 2010. Vista would have ran better due to the hardware being developed and better designed for the resource hogged Vista

i remember Vista. when it first came out, i went straight ahead and installed it on my PC. sadly it never even finished the setup process, because it bluescreened while copying the files to the hard drive, everytime. i installed XP again after 5 tries.
