Microsoft: the end of Windows 7 can be seen on the horizon

Unfortunate news from Microsoft could announce the end of the road for Windows 7 within a few years. After the release of Windows 10, the company has developed a number of strategies to attract new users to its new operating system, although the responses are not as expected.

Although it has been a while ago Windows XP has not received support from Microsoft, even the company must bear the fact that there are many users who still use this operating system. This could generate a direct projection to what might happen to you Windows 7, which is one of the most stable versions of the operating systems developed by the company led by Bill Gates.

Business and institutional customers can pay for the extended security update until January 2023, which is equivalent to three years after Microsoft offers its official regular patches. This is not only an unfortunate news for lovers of Windows 7, but also the prices will gradually rise between 2020 and 2023, so the more companies use this operating system, the more expensive it becomes.

Thanks to the stability and reliability of Windows 7, users can keep working hard before they are reluctant to upgrade to Windows 10, an operating system that still displays some incompatibility with some applications. Windows 7 was released in 2009, but because Microsoft has completed compatibility for Windows XP in 2014, it can be said that this survivor has an early end.

That is why Microsoft has taken the step to encourage its users to upgrade before 2023. Many are reluctant to update Windows 10, but Microsoft plans to increase sales of this operating system.
