End of life for Windows V7
With the impending End of Life for Windows V7 to happen on January 2020, it is important customers are ready for the move. Windows V7 has been one of the most successful operating system developed by Microsoft. There have been many conspiracies &controversies surrounding windows V8. In fact millions of organizations skipped the Windows V8 upgrade and stuck with V7. Many businesses are not convinced that Windows V10 is any better than Windows V8. Even though there are many valid reasons to stay with V7 it is time to start thinking &preparing for that inevitable upgrade.
As mentioned before, Microsoft is ending support for Windows 7 in early 2020 That means that upgrading Windows 10 is your best bet to stay safe from the ever-evolving threats from viruses, However, unlike Windows 7 which only received one major “Service Pack” update, Microsoft frequently works on big updates to Windows 10. Fresh features are always making its way into the newer Windows operating system. It gets major updates twice a year, with the most recent update dubbed as the May 2019 Update. In the past few years, Windows 10 has received new features like the ability to sync your activities across devices with Windows Timeline and continue things on your Android phone on your PC.
Unlike previous versions (including Windows 7), Windows 10 isn’t a stand-alone product for Microsoft. It’s more like a service. The company releases updates twice a year and intends to keep supporting the operating system into the near future. If that plan works out, that means you shouldn’t need to buy a new version a few years from now.
Once January 2020 arrives on our door step it will herald the end of the road for Windows 7. It means that Microsoft will no longer provides any updates, security bugs & support.
Now is the time to be preparing for that necessary move!
