The guys are trying to panic everyone about this Windows 7 support deal. Why ? I am not worried about support in the sense that I need to call Microsoft as a user of it’s product…All I am concerned with is critical security updates, and those will continue. One of our machines has Windows 7 on it. We cannot confuse support to mean a lack of critical updates.

“On January 13th, 2015, all of these products and services will be moving to Extended Support, a five year plan which includes regular, free security updates and paid hotfix support. After the deadline, design changes and new features will no longer be considered though. If you’re still using Windows 7, don’t worry — Extended Support isn’t set to end until January 14th, 2020 and Windows 9 should make its debut well before that date.”
