Windows 7 will never again be refreshed after January 14, 2020
Windows 7 will never again be refreshed after January 14, 2020! Microsoft has announced that the technical support and system updates of its popular operating system “Windows 7” will be discontinued by January 14, 2020. This means that if you are legally using Windows 7 you will not receive updates from Windows after January 14 next year.
However, if you are a Windows 7 business and business customer, you will continue to receive Microsoft Windows 7 security updates at an additional cost.
Be aware that online security is constantly exposed to new threats that are regularly encountered on “Windows Security Updates” on a weekly basis. The Windows operating system automatically downloads and installs these updates. Although no updates will be made to the operating system, there may be risks to its security. It is also worth mentioning that “Windows XP” was Microsoft’s most successful operating system, which was launched in August 2001 and ended support on April 8, 2014. The Windows 7 operating system was launched on July 22, 2009. Although it was also very successful, its success rate was lower than that of Windows XP.
On October 26, 2012, Windows 8 was launched with many claims but it could be described as the failing operating system in Microsoft history. After the severe crisis, finally, on July 29, 2015, Microsoft launched Windows 10, which eliminated many of the earlier version flaws. (Windows 9 never surfaced.) The current state of the operating system market is that around 89% of laptops / desktop computers around the world are using Microsoft’s operating system. Windows 10 is up 50% in this field and Windows Seven is still at 30%.
It will be interesting to read that Microsoft discontinued free updates to Windows 10 in the next year, 2016. Since then, support and updates in Windows 10 have been available on a yearly basis. Maybe Microsoft has something to do with Windows 7 as well.
