Today, Friday 31st October 2014, marks the end of the Windows 7 era, as Microsoft stop shipping licences for the operating system to PC builders, which means no more new PCs with Windows 7.
The only way people will be able to get a new PC with Windows 7 is by buying existing stock, or the other alternative would be to buy Windows 7 Professional, as this will continue to be sold as a stand alone product for a limited time.
For most people this really won’t mean a thing, as the vast majority of new machines are already shipping with Windows 8, with Windows 10 on the horizon.
All Windows products have a life cycle and knowing what these are can be helpful for businesses to plan ahead and make decisions on when to upgrade or change their software. Follow the link for a breakdown >>> Microsoft Windows Lifecycle Fact Sheet
