Windows 7 will be safe for the users for one more year only

Even though Windows 7 is 10 years old, it continues to be one of the most popular operating systems in the world. Windows 10 succeeded to take over the first place in the last year, leaving Windows 7 right behind.

Windows 7 is popular due to many reasons. It was proven more stable and functional in comparison to Windows Vista, so it is clear why it became the main operating system in the world for desktop computers.

Another good reason why it became so popular we find in the companies. The costs for change of the operative system of the whole company are big, and it should also be taken into consideration the time to make this activity, as well as the training of the employees who are accustomed to one user experience.

Windows 7 stopped getting updates since 2015, and by that it entered a period of extended support. This means that even though it is not actively developed and does not get new functions, it gets security updates, fixing of bugs and so on.

This will end on 14 of January 2020, and from that day on there won’t be any upgrades of the system, not even security ones. That means that the users that will continue using it would risk certain problems, and with the time some things won’t be compatible with the famous 7th. Only the companies that would pay Microsoft will get the needed support, but even for that there will be a deadline of a couple of weeks, and the prices will be high.
