Windows 7 End of life.
All good things come to an end and on the 14th January 2020 Windows 7 will reach its end of life and all support for it will be stopped.
What does this mean?
This means that Microsoft will not be issuing updates for Windows 7 anymore. No more feature updates or bug fixes but most importantly no more security updates so as of January 14th, 2020 Windows 7 will no longer be safe to use online in any capacity. I can imagine malware authors already working on tools to take advantage of this fact.
What options do I have?
I know there are lots of people both at home and in business still using Windows 7 today for various reasons but now is the time to seriously think about moving to Windows 10. Now may be a good time to not only move over to Windows 10 but to also consider upgrading hardware to a new desktop or laptop device.
Windows 7 has had good innings in my opinion and will go into the history books as one of the best operating systems ever made.
