Windows 7 updates are being limited by Microsoft on the latest processor platforms, and in combination with the other issues we’ve seen lately when installing Windows 7 we are now only listing it as an option on well-supported configurations… until we run out of licenses, then it’s over.

Back in July of 2009, Windows 7 took over from the much-maligned Windows Vista. It has been widely received as one of Microsoft’s best operating systems, nearly as well liked as Windows XP. All good things must come to an end, though, or so it is said – and Windows 7’s end is nigh.
Windows 10 is available as a free upgrade for computers running Windows 7 and 8.1 through July of 2016. Many people are going to want to upgrade as soon as possible, but there may be some reasons to hold off from jumping on the bandwagon right away… or at least worth considering before you take the plunge.
