Windows 7: End of support

Microsoft works hard to get its users to start using always the newest Operation System. The best practice for this to leave the users behind who do not upgrade in time. Just how it happened last year with Windows XP.



Microsoft’s Windows 7 is today the most popular operations system was made available for the public in October 2009. This year it will be 6 years old, and this fact is getting pushed more and more by Microsoft. The newest attempt to prepare users for an upgrade was made yesterday when Microsoft announced the end of “mainstream” support for Windows 7. This means that it will not receive any new services or make any changes at its design. Though there is no need to get the Windows 8.1 right away, because Windows 7’s extended support with providing security updates and patches will continue.
