Microsoft's Windows 7 operating system is still the world's most widely used OS, but that does not stop Microsoft from waving an early goodbye to the operating system.
The company informed customers on the German Microsoft press site that support for Windows 7 will end on January 14, 2020: about three years from today.
This means, according to Microsoft, that devices won't receive security updates or technical support anymore if they still run Windows 7 by that time.
If you are a regular here on Ghacks, or on other tech sites, you know that support will run out. You know about the Windows lifecycle, and that Windows 7 won't be supported forever by Microsoft.
