(more info)
If you have not heard by now, Microsoft has ended extended support for Windows 7 as of January 14, 2020.

What does this mean?

This means that Windows 7 is now considered to be abandonware. Microsoft will no longer provide free security updates for Windows 7 to keep your PC secure from exploits, and other types of malware. Other software companies will eventually do the same thing as well in a few years or so after Microsoft's extended support date, and end their support of releasing new versions of their software for Windows 7.

Microsoft strongly recommends that the consumer upgrades to Windows 8.1 or Windows 10 to continue receiving security updates.


For users who are using either Windows 7 Pro and Windows 7 Enterprise on Volume License Keys can choose to continue receiving Windows 7 updates, but at a yearly adding cost set by Microsoft though until 2023.

Windows 7 was really great. I wish Windows still looked like it. It combined a more modern look with that old Windows XP sensibility. It will be missed.

@spiderfan Use a browser based on Firefox, those have exceptionally good track records supporting Windows versions far beyond their EoL date. Don't rely on any Electron apps, those will be first to go as they're attached to Google. Carefully pick your motherboard and GPU for new machines, ensuring compatibility. ALso see this lol https://www.ghacks.net/2019/12/07/someone-found-a-way-to-bypass-windows-7-extended-security-updates-checks/

tldr this OS will be practical well into the 2020s. playing modern AAA games will probably require a dualboot though *sighs*

I remember having Windows 7 back at my home in 2015 and at school in 2015 - 2018. Welp, it's too bad to get great apps such as Windows Media Center. R.I.P. Windows 7 (2009 - 2020). By the way, I have a 2018 MacBook Pro.

Screw Windows 10 and 8. Despite the only OS being supported is 10 the older Windows OSs were awesome! Anything before Windows 8 was awesome especially XP and ME which were the 2 computers I grew up with along with 7.
