Microsoft to Let Windows 7 Die Quicker than Windows XP

Since Windows XP will go dark on April 8, 2014, many users have decided to make the move to a newer operating system. Still, despite Microsoft's aggressive marketing campaign for the new 8 and 8.1, many are actually moving to Windows 7, which is often described as a more user-friendly platform.

The tech giant, on the other hand, is willing to make everything to bring more users to Windows 8 and Windows 8.1, so it appears that Windows 7 support won't be extended.

Paul Thurrot is reporting on WindowsITPro that Microsoft wants to avoid dealing with the same problems of moving users to a newer platform when Windows 7 reaches end of support, so the company is willing to let its OS die at the original date.

At the same time, it will continue to promote both Windows 8 and Windows 8.1, just to make sure that those who want to move to a newer operating system will be familiar with the company's new offering.

Mainstream support for Windows 7 will end on January 13, 2015, while extended support, which only includes bug fixes and a number of critical security patches, will end on January 14, 2020.
