Microsoft to stop support for Windows 7, desires users to switch to Windows 10

Microsoft announced that it will no longer provide support for Windows 7. By 2020 the software giant plans to stop security updates and technical support from the company. According to Microsoft, Windows 10 is more popular than Windows 7 although users are more comfortable with windows 7. In December, for example, Windows 10 hit 24.36 percent globally, but it’s dwarfed by Windows 7’s 48.34 percent share.

Microsoft desperately desires that the Windows 7 users should switch to Windows 10, even though Windows 7 is going to be the best desktop operating system (OS) for some period of time. Microsoft desires so because Windows 7 support is coming to an end, and the OS has security issues and can’t cope up with today’s security needs.
