Microsoft To End Windows 7 Mainstream Support Next Year

After Windows XP’s end of support, it is the turn of Windows 7. Few months back, the world’s leading software maker, Microsoft Corporation, reminded Windows 7 users that it would stop providing the mainstream support for Windows 7 in January next year.

You know what happens next, when news like this comes up. It did not take much time for internet users to flood the cyberspace with a wave of confused fear-mongering headlines and articles. Many comments even imply that with the end of Windows 7 mainstream support, the OS is going to follow Windows XP to the grave.

What to do

Let’s not panic. Windows 7 is not going to die that young. We need to know certain things first. Actually, all the confusion here stems from the software giant’s really confusing and obtuse naming conventions. End of mainstream support only means that the OS will no longer receive any new features or tweaks. When a Windows operating system is removed from the ‘mainstream support’ list, it then enters another support type or period; the ‘extended support’ phase. During this phase, the OS will receive all the essential patches and security updates, as well as official technical support for any issues in the system.

Users need to know that Windows 7 support has five more years after the end of mainstream support. This means that though Windows 7 will not be in active development after next January, it will certainly not be tossed to the hyenas and wolves of the internet, either.

All genuine Windows 7 users will receive the important hotfixes. The only thing is that the only the security related ones will be available. Another thing, businesses will be able to sign up for an extended Windows 7 support plan, in case they need non-security feature updates.

The extended support for Windows 7 will continue until January 14, 2020. That is certainly a long time. You can go through the software giant’s support lifecycle for Windows online, in case you are still not satisfied about the news, and want to know how the support plan actually works.

So, coming back to not panicking, yes, you have no reason to panic. Windows 7 will not be dead for a long, long time. You still have quite some time to decide which OS to move on to next.
