Clock is Ticking on Windows 7

Clock is Ticking on Windows 7

12-Nov-2015     Though Microsoft will continue to be support Windows 7 until 2020, buyers who want to stay with the tried and true are running out of time.
     According to the Ed Bott Report, the PC giant has updated its LifeCycle Fact Sheet  to say that October 31, 2016 is the last date on which manufacturers can build PCs with Windows 7 pre-installed on the computer. In other words, if you hate Windows 8.1 - who doesn't? - and aren't sure about Windows 10, you have about one year to land a Windows 7.The purchase window itself is vague since whatever is manufactured as of next Halloween still needs to be sold in the retail stores. Best recommendation: Don't wait too long to fill that large and stretchable Christmas stocking.
     Of course, any such new purchase will come with a caveat: only four years of extended support, which will run out January 10, 2020. Let's hope that Windows 10 turns out to be a solid enough product that we won't have to worry that much about "to buy or not to buy."
