Today is the last day of what Microsoft calls “mainstream support” and this has been planned since a long time.
Windows 7 users don’t panic: Windows 7 will get security updates and patches for the next five years, the real deadline is Jan 14, 2020.
In the meantime, Microsoft won’t be issuing no further development of NEW features for W7.
Besides a well-known life-cycle deadline roadmap, this move tries to move users towards Windows 8 (quite unlikely) or to prepare them for the upcoming Windows 10.
Right now, Windows 7 is reportedly running almost half of the world’s PCs while a huge amount of Windows XP computers are still out there.
Yes, Windows XP! The never-dying OS that Microsoft declared for dead last year in April, shocking the world…
Again, don’t panic: Windows 7 will be mainstream, usable and supported for some time in the future…
