Windows 7 End of Life

Windows 7 EOL

The End of Life cycle for Windows 7 is set for January 2020.

Microsoft will stop all support (including the paid support) and all updates. Until January 14, 2020, Microsoft still offers paid support with security updates. After that, Windows 7 will be EOL.

Why is Microsoft ending the support for Windows 7? This is known from previous Microsoft Operating Systems. The beginning of a life cycle starts when a product is released and ends when it’s no longer supported. It’s important to know the key dates in the life cycle so our users can make decisions about when they need to upgrade, update or make changes to the hardware or software.

Can I upgrade to Windows 10? Yes, and you should because Windows 10 supports applications that can be used over multiple devices. It’s not only safer and more stable but has a lot of other advantages.

IMPORTANT NOTICE: Microsoft said that it will support Windows 7 until January 2020 but they are already blocking older machines who are, for example, running Pentium III CPUs. So Windows users should be aware that they need to update as soon as possible.
