Microsoft: “death” of Windows 7 spawned a wave of upgrades

Support and official lifespan of the Windows 7 operating system ended over a year ago, and now Microsoft has announced that this important milestone has spawned a wave of upgrades in 2020.

Microsoft does not provide exact statistics. But, according to the company, the discontinuance of support for Windows 7 has resulted in “a significant number” of migrations to Windows 10 during 2020. What’s more, Microsoft expects the trend to continue in 2021.

Microsoft ended support for the Windows 7 operating system a year ago, on January 14, 2020. Nevertheless, millions of people continue to use this OS, despite the risks and security threats. At the time of the end of support, Windows 7 was used on about 1 computer in 4 in the world, and by January 2021, more than 1 in 10.

Moving from Windows 7 to Windows 10 is still free – Microsoft continues to turn a blind eye to a loophole that has been working for years.
