Microsoft To End Mainstream Support For Windows 7 Next Year

Windows 7 Support

         Windows 7 Support Info

If you think that the Windows XP end-of-support was the biggest matter of concern this year, wait for more – Microsoft has something bigger in store. Recent reports say that the free Windows 7 support will be ended as early as by January next year. Shocked?

It is hard to believe that in less than a year after Microsoft pulled out the plug of Windows XP, the official tech support for Windows 7 will cease to exist. This news is difficult to digest if you are a Windows 7 user or an ardent fan of the popular operating system, but let us analyze what the company means by this “end of support”.

This end of support actually refers to the date when the software giant will no longer provide things like automatic fixes, updates, or online technical support for the particular product of service. Moreover, when the support for Windows 7 ends, your system will no longer receive security updates that are needed to protect it from spyware, viruses, and other harmful software capable of stealing your personal information.

The end of support for Windows 7 could mean the worst fear coming true for users who find Windows 8 confusing. When the latest Windows operating system was released in 2012, it faced flak and hostile reviews. The online world flooded with complaints regarding the latest Windows OS, and many users had been adamantly determined to keep using Windows 7. These obstinate diehards may very well have to cave in when the support for Windows 7 will officially end next January.

Personal Information

                Windows 7 Support Help

As per Forbes reports, the Windows 7 support end will happen on 13 January 2015. That means that after the end-of-life date, no new Windows 7 Service Packs or features will be released. This is not to be confused with “Extended Support” though. The “Extended Support” for Windows 7 will be available until 11 April 2017, and Windows 7 users will continue to receive some security patches.

So, as long as users of Windows 7 powered systems have a Service Pack, things will be OK until 2017. However, 2017 is not that long for Windows 7 lovers to hold out. It is better to start absorbing the tricky user interface of Windows 8 and migrate before the clock strikes.

You hardly have any other option if you prefer sticking with Microsoft products. There are other free OS options as well, but they may not be as satisfactory as using a Microsoft developed operating system.

Microsoft To End The Mainstream Support For Windows 7

Windows 7 Support

             Windows 7 Features

Microsoft has finally decided to put an end to the support for Windows 7 as well, quite similar to Windows XP. According to the Windows 7 support team, the company is planning to end the mainstream support for Windows 7 by January 13, 2015. This has created issues for the existing Windows 7 users, especially those who have switched over to the OS from the Windows XP operating system.

The ending of mainstream support will mean that the Windows 7 users won’t be getting any more security patches or updates to ensure secure functioning of the system. The situation of the operating system will be similar to that of its predecessor i.e. Windows XP. Although the mainstream support for Windows 7 will end by next year, businesses that pay for extended Windows 7 support will continue getting updates and support for another five years i.e. until January 14, 2020. Hence, it can be said that it would be the normal users who will face severe issues regarding the unavailability of support for their Windows 7 devices.

It is clear why Microsoft has suddenly taken this decision of dropping the support for its overtly popular operating system. When the company stopped the mainstream support for Windows XP, it had foreseen an increase in the sales of the universally rejected Windows 8 operating system. On the other hand, most of the Windows XP users either moved onto Windows 7 or switched over to other operating systems with a small amount of users voting for Windows 8.

Market Share

                 Windows 7 End Of Support

According to the technicians at the Windows 7 support team, many Windows XP users call them up daily to upgrade their systems to Windows 7. This can be clearly understood from the latest market share reports. Compared to the meager 14 % achieved by Windows 8, Windows 7 has been able to attract almost 50 % of the Windows users and this speaks a lot about user friendly features available in the OS.

By employing such business strategies, one can say that Microsoft is still trying hard to make Windows 8 and 8.1 appealing to the users. Once Windows 9 gets released worldwide, Microsoft would leave no stone unturned to make all its users migrate to the touch-sensitive versions. The latest announcement about the end of the support for Windows 7 OS can be seen just as a starting of this novel business plan to boost the sales of the latest versions.
