Microsoft Waves "Early Goodbye" To Windows 7, Pushes Windows 10 Upgrades

Support for Windows 7 won’t cease until 2020, but Microsoft is already warning users to update to Windows 10 as soon as they can. They argue that moving on from Windows 7 is a "logical decision," as it features outdated security, leading to higher costs due to things like malware attacks. Furthermore, they stress that only Windows 10 has support for the latest chips.

آ…Microsoft is desperate for those users to switch to Windows 10 and warns that Windows 7 support is coming to an end, and that the OS has outdated security and can’t keep up with today’s security needs. In a post headed 'An early goodbye to Windows 7! Support ends in three years' Microsoft's German press site tells users that in three years Windows 7 extended support will run out permanently, and that from January 14, 2020 there will be "no security updates, updates and no technical support from Microsoft". It describes the move as a "logical decision" as "Windows 7 can no longer keep up with the increased security requirements" and sticking with the older OS actually leads to "higher operating costs" due to "increased malware attacks and even increased support requests".
