T-Minus 365 Days…
Windows 7 is currently the most widely used operating system with 40% of all computer users still running on this system, according to Net Application.
In less than 365 days, January 14, 2020, Windows 7 will reach the end of it’s product lifecycle. This means any users still using this operating system at this time will be vulnerable to security risks and viruses. In addition to the dramatically increased risk of security threats, users who remain on Windows 7 will no longer receive technical support from Microsoft for Windows 7.
When asked what a Windows 7 user should do, Microsoft has shared the following:
“For most Windows 7 users, moving to a new device with Windows 10 will be the recommended path forward. Today’s PCs are faster, lightweight, yet powerful and more secure, with an average price that’s considerably less than that of the average PC eight years ago.”
Like it or not, change is inevitable when it comes to IT and the countdown for Windows 7 EOS has begun. Thankfully, there is still time to prepare and make the shift from Windows 7 to a modern desktop, and we are happy to help.
