In about 400 days, Windows 7 will get the support guillotine.
Microsoft has set the end of general support – the kind that’s free to all, and at this point exclusively patches to quash vulnerabilities – as Jan. 14, 2020. Customers have known that for years, what with Microsoft’s once-traditional support policy.
But what happens before that date? Or after?
Computerworld used the year or so prior to Windows XP’s retirement – that OS was Windows 7’s predecessor as an enterprise linchpin – to assemble definite, likely and possible events on 7’s calendar.
Pencil these dates and return here frequently; Computerworld will be updating this timeline as Microsoft makes further proclamations about Windows 7’s demise.
