I was looking on microsofts Support Lifecycle web page and found that, windows 7 is only supported until 2015.

Well thats not very long. If you have pro there is extended support up to 14/01/2020.

Windows 7 has only just been released. Windows should have main support for at least ten years, as it takes that long to get all the bugs sorted out. I also don't want to keep upgrading all the time.

XP support runs out on 08/04/2014, so not much point in buying windows 7 then.


Why is Microsoft doing this?

well, its all up to microsoft in the end. they may want to have an OS out in 2013 and probably another in 2019, about every 4 years. in order to not over load the tech support in companies, they end the life cycle regularly.
