Microsoft To End Support For Windows 7 in 2015

Microsoft is warning customers that the end is coming soon for Windows 7 in the same way it came out for Windows XP earlier this year. The company will exit mainstream support for Windows Free 7 on January 13, 2015, but users will still receive security updates until 2020.

  The measure will mainly affect consumers. Companies that pay for extended support for Windows 7, as most of them do, will be supported for five years on 14 January 2020.

That's important because many companies are currently in the process of upgrading their old PCs with Windows XP, but are moving to Windows 7, Windows 8 does.
