Windows 7 is in its last year of support from Microsoft. The extended support final date is January 14th 2020 and after that, no more patches will be developed by Microsoft. Of course, it comes as no surprise that Windows 7 is still one of the most used operating systems in with the world with a share of 40.86% according to NetMarketShare. In fact, it was only in December 2018 that Windows 7 was surpassed by Windows 10.
One of the more interesting statistics regarding operating systems is that Windows XP and Windows 8.1 are tied at around 4.5%, despite support for Windows XP ending in 2014.
With less than a year to go before the patches stop, a few questions immediately spring to mind.
