Microsoft has been terminating Windows 7 support for a year

It took until last month, until Windows 10 has finally overtaken the usage share of Windows 7. However, the older operating system is still very popular. Mainstream support for Windows 7 was discontinued in January 2015. However, Microsoft's extended support, which has been running for five years, has continued to provide security updates and patches for known issues. However, this should end on January 14, 2020, exactly one year after today.

Cessation of support could be a nightmare for businesses, as 43 percent of companies still use Microsoft's nine-year-old operating system, according to a new report "Death of Windows 7" by the content delivery company Kollective.
