Is Your PC still Running On Windows 7? Read This!




I have noticed a lot of users still stuck on windows 7 OS most especially gamers and software engineers.. I never knew it had its implications until I stumbled on this article. Most people tends to find windows 8 and 10 boring hence stick to Windows 7. 

It will amaze you to know that the world most popular Microsoft OS Windows 7 is already 8 years old and approaching its dead end. Right now, it’s on a life support and will be pulling off any moment from now. 

As of now, Windows 7 only receives major bug fixes and security updates. Microsoft is set to officially end its support to Windows 7 on January 14, 2020. This would mean that no more security updates, product updates or technical support from Microsoft.

Microsoft took to its German website to encourage Windows 7 users to upgrade to the latest OS. According to them, 
“Windows 7 slowly becomes old. It does not meet the requirements of today’s modern technology, nor the high security requirements of IT departments. We learned from Windows XP that companies should take early steps to avoid future risks or costs.”
 “Companies and users who won’t upgrade from Windows 7 within the next three years are facing enormous dangers.” 

Windows 7 has a simplified user interface thats why when you go to most cyber cafés, you’ll still find windows 7 installed on their system. The question is why have they refuse to upgrade to the latest OS?
