Windows 7 will be no more....will you be ready?


In early 2020, Microsoft Windows 7 runs out of general support.

This deadline is encouraging businesses to move up to Windows 10.

Pencil in these dates as the transition to Windows 10 gathers momentum.

Dec 2019

Microsoft may start forcing Windows 7 to show users an on-screen nag reminding them of the upcoming Jan 14, 2020, retirement deadline and urging them to upgrade to Windows 10.

Jan 2020

Microsoft will continue to craft security patches for Windows 7 after the operating system's retirement date.

Those fixes will not be offered to the general public or for free to corporate customers. Rather, Microsoft will sell what it calls "Windows 7 Extended Security Updates" (ESU) to businesses running Windows 7 Professional or Windows 7 Enterprise, and then only if those OSes were obtained via a volume licensing deal.
