The era is leaving – Microsoft has announced the termination of support for Windows 7, but millions of people are in no hurry to leave it

Company Microsoft announced that starting today the operating system Windows 7 will no longer receive active support with various updates and advised users to switch to Windows 10.

Obviously, the termination of support in the foreseeable future will in no way affect the functionality of the system, people will be able to use their PCs with Windows 7 in the usual way, if “moving” to more current versions of Windows or their alternatives does not seem to be a very attractive option. However, Microsoft notes that the old OS is now at risk of being more susceptible to various hacker and virus attacks.

It is important to note that Despite the fact that Windows 7 is already more than ten years old, there are a huge number of people around the world who still prefer to work on this OS. According to statistics from various independent sources, By 2023, Windows 7 remains the current operating system for 200-450 million users. Despite the not very high accuracy of the data, the fact remains that the score of PCs running Windows 7 still goes to hundreds of millions.

The official launch of Windows 7 took place on July 22, 2009.
