Windows 7 Product Support Lifecycle Tags: Windows 7 Support Last response: November 14, 2009 4:36 PM in Windows 7 Share p75 November 14, 2009 4:21:48 PM 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. Link http://support.microsoft.com/gp/lifeselectwin Why is Microsoft doing this? More about : windows product support lifecycle daft November 14, 2009 4:36:50 PM 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. m 0 l Can't find your answer ?
