ExplainingComputers: Windows 7: One Year to Go
Check out this new video by ExplainingComputers!
Windows 7 Extended Support ends on January 14 2020 for most users. In this video I explain the exact situation, including detailing the extended security updates announced by Microsoft in September 2018, which only cover a limited number of Windows 7 versions and licenses. I also discuss why nearly 40 per cent of PC users are still running Windows 7, and the choices they face.
The Microsoft documentation referred to in the video is as follows:
Microsoft Windows Lifecycle Fact Sheet:
Microsoft September 2018 blog post announcing Windows 7 Extended Security Updates (ESUs) for Volume Licensing users:
Microsoft Ways to Buy: Commercial (Volume) Licensing Agreements:
Downgrade rights for Microsoft Commercial Licensing, OEM, and full-package product licenses (note that this is a pdf download link):
