Microsoft Warns Windows 7 Has Serious Problems

This Forbes article references a recent chat over at Windows Weekly, in which Microsoft’s marketing chief explains that those of you who still use Windows 7 do so "at your own risk, at your own peril." What could Microsoft's motive possibly be?

"We do worry when people are running an operating system that’s 10 years old that the next printer they buy isn’t going to work well, or they buy a new game, they buy Fallout 4, a very popular game, and it doesn’t work on a bunch of older machines," Capossela stated. "And so, as we are pushing our ISV [Independent Software Vendor] and hardware partners to build great new stuff that takes advantage of Windows 10 that obviously makes the old stuff really bad and not to mention viruses and security problems."
