Thinking of retiring in 2020? So is Windows 7. Microsoft has announced it will cease to support Windows 7 from January 14th, 2020. This means that users of the old operating system will no longer be supported or receive crucial security patches, cutting off protection against new vulnerabilities.
Windows 7 users are encouraged to move to Windows 10 ahead of the deadline to ensure a smooth transition and reduce the risk of security breach. Support is also being withdrawn from Server 2008 and SQL 2008 on January 14th.
Microsoft’s move away from Windows 7 ensures full focus on Windows 10, also referred to as “the last Windows”. The architecture of Windows 10 will allow it to be the eternal operating system. Microsoft will continue to extend its lifecycle by adding new feature upgrades for “the immortal OS”.
Anyone using Windows 7 or Windows 8 will see immediate benefits from moving to Windows 10:
- Increased security includes Device Guard, MS Passport and MS Hello.
- Moving from Windows 7 or 8, you will be instantly impressed with the speed of 10, particularly in Start Up as it cuts out unnecessary processes.
- One of the most-loved features of Windows 10 is its usability; touch screen technology allows you to access it from any device.
