    Well, this one hurts as Microsoft is stopping all support for Windows 7 on January 14, 2020. Windows 7 was launched in 2009 when I bought my bigrig PC so it may be the end of that unless I finally upgrade to Windows 10. Anybody else still have Windows 7?

    Microsoft had one last update and basically said that PCs 3 years or younger should be upgraded to Windows 10 and anybody with an older PC should buy a new one! lol

    Probably won't be long until people find security vulnerabilities, especially since Windows XP's source code was leaked not long ago and Windows 7 is just one generation ahead of XP. But as long as you're not visiting dangerous sites or downloading things you shouldn't be downloading, and have an anti-virus software, then the risk of system compromise is substantially low.

    *Windows Vista has entered the chat.

    After giving Microsoft 6+ months to fix any immediate issues (Windows 10 was bad enough at launch I reverted to 8 for a year) I always recommend just updating and getting on with it. This is especially true in the era of Windows 10, where Microsoft's current stated intent is to just keep upgrading Win10 instead of progressing to a Windows 11 of any sort (and you don't need a new license to update from one version to the next).
