Relax! Windows 7 will be supported for many years to come. However, Microsoft has announced it will no longer supply Windows 7 to computer manufacturers. That means that when you buy a new computer, there will no longer be an option of getting it with Windows 7.
That leaves me with a decision to make. I have Windows 8 on both my tablet and my smartphone and I am now very comfortable with it. However, on my desktop I still have Windows 7. I have put off upgrading as I have always had several projects on the go and then it is not wise to do a major upgrade.
Is it now time to upgrade? I think so.
