Windows 7 Pro Deadline Extended

Windows 7 Help

        Windows 7 End-Of-Support

With the recent demise of Windows XP, Windows 7 users are already worried about the end of its mainstream support, which is fixed on 13 January 2015. Apart from this, there is a lesser-known deadline hanging for Windows.

As was long announced in the official Windows website, Windows 7 Home Basic, Windows 7 Home Premium, and Ultimate editions of the company’s popular operating system (OS) will no longer be sold from 31, October 2014. Microsoft has stuck to this deadline, although giving a breather for Windows 7 Professional, silently extending the end-of-sales deadline by making amendments to its website. To know more details, contact our Windows 7 help team.

Back in 31st October, 2013, Microsoft had stopped selling all retail software versions of the Windows 7 OS (i.e. boxed copies of the OS not pre-installed on a PC – Windows 7 Home Basic, Home Premium, Ultimate, and Professional). Now, this year, Windows will stop releasing computers with Windows 7 OS pre-installed in them.

However, this does not mean that all the stocks running Windows 7 OS will be cleared. Retailers can run these stocks until they are cleared, however upon completion, Windows 7 PCs will not be available for sale from retail outlets.

Currently, Microsoft has not announced a date for the end of sales of Windows. Since Microsoft is duty-bound to provide at-least one prior notice before end-of-sale date, customers will have ample time to buy laptops, desktops, and tablets pre-installed with Windows 7 Professional.

        Features Of Windows 7

With Windows 7 mainstream Support destined to end in just few years, some confusion about course of action for users willing to upgrade will exist. Windows 8, a lesser-successful operating system is the obvious choice, but not for long. Windows 9 OS is destined to be released in the first quarter of 2015. This new OS has several never-before-featured features and is expected to impress even the hardcore Windows critics.

If you are interested to know about the technical specifications and features of this OS, the ‘Technology Preview Beta’ is due in October 2014, after which you will be able to view and compare the different features for your heart’s content.

Users who are not interested in upgrading need not worry. Although the Mainstream support may end soon, the extended Support will run for another three more years. This means Microsoft will continue to send regular security patches and updates to secure your system against frequent attacks. Windows XP enjoyed the same for over 13 years after its public release. Our Windows 7 help team can help you decide which OS would be best for you.

Microsoft To Terminate Windows 7 Support Soon

Windows 7 Help And Support

Microsoft has already announced that the company would be ending the mainstream support for Windows 7 by January 2015. Upon hearing this news, many users started to contact the Windows 7 help to know about its legitimacy. The Microsoft technicians have already started to warn the customers to move onto the latest operating systems to avoid security issues once the company officially ends providing the support for the OS.

Once Microsoft had ended the support for Windows XP this year, many users flocked over to Windows 7 operating system by unanimously rejecting Windows 8. According to the Windows 7 help and support team, the user share of Windows 7 increased in large numbers and thus again affected the business prospects of Microsoft as far as the sales of Windows 8 were concerned. Many IT organizations also migrated to the Windows 7 OS solely due to the advanced and user-friendly features it comprised of.

However, now with Microsoft finally terminating the services for Windows 7, the existing users would have no option other than upgrading to the latest touch-centric versions. According to IT advisory firm Garner, those enterprises still relying on Windows 7 should not wait until Microsoft formally ends the support for the OS. As stated by Gartner research VP Stephen Kleynhans, “Organizations must start planning now, so they can prevent a recurrence of what happened with Windows XP. The good news is that improvements to Windows 8 help enable adoption.”

He also stated that the enterprises that use Windows 7 should consider three options to make the upgrade process less tiring. According to Kleynhans, the companies

should try installing Windows 8 on the new PCs as they arrive and gradually replace Windows 7. The second option is to skip Windows 8 completely and plan to install the next version of the Windows operating system. Well, this strategy will work for most companies because Microsoft is all set to launch Windows 10 by mid 2015. Moreover, the latest OS would be having the much popular Start Menu, which is absent in Windows 8. The last option is to upgrade all the Windows 7 systems to Windows 8, thereby eliminating the aged operating system as a whole. But this option would not find more takers because it is almost impossible to deploy Windows 8 on all the systems.

In short, a better option would be to either gradually switch over to Windows 8 or wait until Microsoft launches Windows 10 in the market.
