The Windows 7 operating system, released by Microsoft in 2009 for use in computers and used by millions of people, will now be history. Microsoft will end its support for the operating system with the latest Windows 7 update it will release tomorrow.
Microsoft will no longer support computers using the Windows 7 operating system, with the latest update due to be released on January 14, 2020.
More than 10 years after the release of Windows 7, millions of computers worldwide still prefer this operating system. Therefore, many users are very responsive to the fact that Microsoft will attract their support.
Computer users using the Windows 7 operating system will be able to continue using the system without the new update. But Windows 7, which will not be offered a new update by Microsoft, will become more vulnerable to a variety of viruses and security threats. So it seems it would be wiser to switch to the company's most up-to-date operating system, Windows 10.
In addition, corporate firms will be able to get Windows 7 updated for a while, for a certain fee that Microsoft will pay.
Today, there are 1.2 billion computers in the world using the Windows operating system. Nearly 1 billion of these computers use Windows 10, while 200 million computers still use Windows 7.
