Windows 7’s extended support ends on January 14, 2020. The operating system left mainstream support in 2014, meaning that for the last two years—and next three—it only receives security fixes. But Microsoft is telling corporate customers that even with those security updates, the 2009 operating system isn’t really cut out for the world of today. According to Redmond, enterprises should plan to move to Windows 10 sooner, rather than later.The reason, according to Markus Nitschke, head of Windows at Microsoft Germany, is that Windows 7 “does not meet the requirements of modern systems, nor the security requirements of IT departments.”
