Windows, the biggest software brand in the computer world, has been almost the sole dominion of the market for years. If we leave Apple’s macOS aside, it is impossible to say that Windows has any competitor in the market. Maybe that’s why computer users have no choice but to follow the rules of Windows, and now the boss is changing the rules of the game again.
According to the statement made by the American technology giant Microsoft, the update service offered for Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 operating systems will come to an end, starting tomorrow, January 10, 2023.
Attention Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 users!
In fact, this is not a surprise because the company has not offered feature updates for these two operating systems since 2020, but only kept its old friends alive with security packages. However, as of tomorrow, this support will end and both Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 users will be left to their fate.
Windows 7 entered our lives for the first time on July 22, 2009, so it is an operating system that has been in use for almost 14 years. Windows 8.1, on the other hand, was released on August 27, 2013, but as you can see, its age is much younger than Windows 7. The retirement of two operating systems, which have a significant difference of 4 years between them, was interpreted as the clearest indication that Microsoft is now sacrificing its predecessor Windows 10.
