Microsoft : End of an era for Windows 7 and 8.1 ?

The Microsoft announced that the beloved Windows 7 and Windows 8 -Less Favourites will be scarce from October 31, 2016! Wondering why?



The company policy is to stop the distribution of its software two years after the release of their next version. So, while Windows 7 normally should have been “withdrawn” from the market in 2014, they continued to be available until today because of poor public response in the next version, Windows 8.1. With the renewed version but Windows 10, Microsoft has not reason to continue selling computers preinstalled with “old” most software.

Therefore, the technology giant he forbade selling computers preinstalled with Windows 7 and 8.1 by October 31 next year … but to stop and support. Buyers can buy computers with specific software only if the devices with these versions are in stock in stores.


Support for Windows 7 and 8.1 will continue until 2020 and 2023 accordingly, although we believe most users will choose to upgrade to 10 if they improve their small flaws!
