Are You Prepared for Windows 7 End of Life?
Windows 7 Support Ends January 14, 2020
Windows 7 is due to reach End Of Life (EOL) on 14 January 2020, but a large number of the world’s computers, most in corporate environments, are still running the nine-year-old system.
Microsoft ended mainstream support for Windows 7 in January 2015, with extended support running till 14 January 2020. Businesses which fail to migrate in time will be saddled with high fees for further support from Microsoft.
This End of Life means no more bug-fixes, security patches or new functionality, making any user – personal or enterprise – significantly more susceptible to malware attacks. Just as it did with Windows XP, Microsoft will continue to offer support for those Windows 7 users still reluctant to upgrade to its Windows 10 OS, but it’ll cost you.
