Being a 'Die Hard' Windows 7 user, I was glad nothing of the sort has been mentioned, at least until 2020.
Even more than half-way through its decade of support, Windows 7 remains the most popular version of Windows. According to analytics vendor Net Applications, Windows 7 accounted for nearly 62% of all copies of Windows in use during October, far more than Windows XP (with 13%), Windows 8/8.1 (15%) and Windows 10 (9%) combined.
Of course having said that..I need to get off my bum and get my 'New Machine'. Especially since I have narrowed it down to (2) choices of Products.. I half-heartedly need to make the leap to Windows 10.
Altered the header to clarify that it's Microsoft that is no longer supporting it. In the case of W8 it's logical as 8.1 was supposed to be its ultimate version, a service pack if you were.
Heaven knows Microsoft made it easy enough to upgrade.
No Problem I separated the paragraph's. Actually I should have edited that last part into my 1st reply..
I keep Windows 10 as my spare still and will continue to use Windows 7 as my main machine until the 2020 deadline.
If I'm still plugging away then I will most likely then switch to a Mac.
