Microsoft is going to stop supporting Windows 7 from Tuesday so that it can focus on "newer technologies".

As a result, Windows 7 users will no longer receive the all-important security updates and patches that keep their machines safe.

One in four Windows users is running Windows 7,

W10 might be alright with the anti-telemetry stuff on.

Just had my work desktop W10ified :(. I don't know where anything is...

Still on 7 at home, have a W10 laptop but just built a desktop for my dad. I don't think there are any Win7 drivers for it so I might have to take the plunge :(.

I don’t mind Windows 10. I watched a video on YouTube that shows you all the things to turn off which I have done and it seems okay.

fix to extend support for Win 7 mate
I'd heard something about it but who's providing the updates?

I know XP was hardened by some company after support was discontinued, Tesco still use it, I saw it on their terminals :).
