Microsoft Reveals Terminated Windows Support Within Year
Adopting the mentality, “Out with the old and in with the new,” Microsoft revealed that, within the year, support for Windows 7 will no longer be available. Gadget360 wrote, “Microsoft’s updated Windows lifecycle fact sheet states that the company will end extended support for Windows 7 on January 14, 2020, which means Microsoft won’t release any more updates and security fixes after that date.”
Giving current Window 7 users only 1 year left to remedy their desktop, the corporation also urged that “[they] will not accept requests for warranty support, design changes, or new features during the extended support phase.”
Although released in 2009, Windows 7 has remained a preferred system with a notable number of consistent users. While Windows 10 has absorbed a notable percentage of the system’s participants, this news comes with a range of mixed emotions.
