    Reminder Windows 7 Support Ends Today

    Microsoft made a commitment to provide 10 years of product support for Windows 7 when it was released on October 22, 2009. When this 10-year period ends, Microsoft will discontinue Windows 7 support so that we can focus our investment on supporting newer technologies and great new experiences. The specific end of support day for Windows 7 will be January 14, 2020. After that, technical assistance and software updates from Windows Update that help protect your PC will no longer be available for the product. Microsoft strongly recommends that you move to Windows 10 sometime before January 2020 to avoid a situation where you need service or support that is no longer available.

    According to Steam statistics, ~33% of Steam users are still using Windows 7.

    Eh. I wanted to keep using Win 7 but had no choice but to upgrade because of Direct X.

    Meh, anyone that's still using it is unlikely to give a shit about MS support

    Still got critical apps running in Windows 7 at work. Figured they'd have determined a way to get them working in W10 by now.

    Is it a big deal?
    I got asked by MiL on weekend about it, shes on 7 and the reminder is popping up. She hardly ever uses the computer and i'm not 100% sure Windows 7 is still a free upgrade to Windows 10? Easiest option will be to USB windows install it and hope it keeps all the settings. As that will be a ballache to redo.

    no not really. the sky will not fall on you if you're still using it past January. Keep your browser updated and any AV up-to-date.

    Pretty sure you can still use your Win7 key to install Win10 and effectively get the free upgrade. Whether Win10 works on the current hardware or not is a different story.
