I run windows 10 as well. For those that runs windows 7, will just have to bite it in them and buy a win 10 licence or keep using windows 7 and live with the sicurity risk that will be when update support ends.

Or they can try out linux or something like it or bay a mac/apple product.

Keep using W7

Serious advice: If you really must do this, take backups.

The next cryptolocker-esque worm that comes around will probably eat 7 for breakfast and there won't be a patch, more likely than not. If you have a backup what's there to worry about though?

It ain't the end of the world. What it means there are gonna be no updates and no support. It's not like all of a sudden your PC will blow up or OS will stop booting. It's not Vista MSDN beta.

Already been running Linux to keep Spy 10 off the machine and using Win 7 ATM just because.
Not worried because I'm set either way.

You won't find anything Alexia related in my home either - Funny how over the years Alexia was well known to be spyware but now it's one of the "In" things to have.

Just proves with good PR and marketing you can sell anything.

Linux is always a goto of mine. But Windows is just a better performer for gaming. Anything else, linux can do better really.

I'll still be using Win 7 as well, with a very strong firewall that I control everything in, what comes in what goes out all has to get approved by me first. This is what I do now, and sometimes I go 6 months with no security updates as it is, who needs them? Not I.

I will keep using Windows 7 for as long as I can, just like I've been using Windows XP on my older gaming PC, that's been working brilliantly. I was hoping to keep using WMC in Windows 10, but Microsoft keeps intentionally ruining it at every update. What a dirtbag company.

SOS here. The more things change, the more they stay the same. Literally in this case. I still intend to run all the OSes I have installed on all of my machines 'till the end of time. Only change/upgrade 'em if I really need to, and/or if I even can(can't on 1 of 'em, s478 P4 barely runs 7 32-bit as it is).

Sleep late.

In have always considering putting a new OS on old hardware the ultimate exercise in foolishness. I watched carefully when the "big one" came around and Infoworld reported that American business spend between $2500 and $4500 per box moving their users to the new OS including down time, training, hardware upgrades IT staff time, etc. because MS told us it would be so much faster. My expectations was that it wasn't going to change things all that much but for whatever reasons it seemed no one was doing any comparisons ... I gues becayuse the mindset was , well it's 32 bit of course it's faster.

Then came PC magazine annual round up issue with "over 100 PCs tested". I usually poured over this looking for trends ... one was systems w/ SCSI Hard Drives were always faster. The thing that puzzled me however, was:

a) There where a bit over 100 PCs tested about 65 % Win95 / 35% W4WGs
b) They were not grouped in any way as by CPU, by video, by HD etc... so to figure out why No. 22 as faster than number 31, you had to do a lot of page flipping so see what was in what.
c) In previous years, the article ran from start to finish on consecutive pages, with occasional interruptions by companies doing 3 - 6 page ads.
d) However ... the Win95 systems were separate by over 100 pages from the W4WGs systems which was a WTH moment.
e) I did notice that many companies ... Dell, Gateway, Comtrade, yada yada yada .... submitted several identical boxes say over 3 price tiers, where the only difference was the OS .. Why would they do that ?
f) It soon became apparent ... i copied the data into a spreadsheet (Yeay Lotus 1-2-3) and the result was shocking .... the W4WGs boxes averaged 40% faster than the Win95 boxes.

I could only conclude this was the reason for the 100 pages of separation ... the magazines were yanking in mega dollars for all the hardware ads, new software ads, and no one wanted to risk being the dude who let the cat out the bag that Win95 was a dud.

Back in the day, when you bought a new lappie for example, the manufacturers who gave you the option not to have OS reinstalled, gave you a CD which, when inserted booted up a Windows install menu which gave multiple choices ... a) Install Win95 b) Install 4WGs . We pretty much stayed with W4WGs for the grown ups. I fondly remeber those days when boot menu had 6 options w/ different config.sys and autoexec.bat files .... a) W4WGs for office suites and online stuff (Compuserve), b) DOS for AutoCAD and c) Win95 for the kids. The other 3 were basically tweaked with helix memory utility which was kinda required to get past the DOS memory limit and run AutoCAD w/ any degree of production.

Still have not seen an instance where putting new OS on hardware was a win. Win 10 was anticipated to do so, especiually in gaming but test results were pretty split. Early "leaked" testing showed significant gains which kinda disappeared over time. But here we are 12 years later and DX11 is far from "gone". Back in November my son and I toasted to the fact that Win 7 was now the No. 2 OS.

Lastly, I'm kinda stuck with it. I have a $15,000 36" wide format color plotter . I never had Vista but was able to use a hack to make the Vista driver work on Windows 7. So will have to keep a working box around if i wanna keep using my plotter.

I'm using windows 10 myself but I was wondering what will you do as windows 7 user after January 14, 2020?....
I have a system that has no internet connection. So for that system, there's not motivation at all to do anything. The system I'm currently typing out the message on has a kernel level firewall(not the builtin Windows FW), well configured, which sits behind hardware firewall. It also runs a number of security based browser plugins, but most importantly I abide by a good computing ethic which includes not visiting "IShouldntBeHere.com" types of web sites.
Linux is always a goto of mine. But Windows is just a better performer for gaming. Anything else, linux can do better really.
We agree here. Linux Mint is an excellent desktop OS.
(can't on 1 of 'em, s478 P4 barely runs 7 32-bit as it is)
I'd put that thing back on XP, unless you have a specific need for 7.

Already on Windows 10. I liked Windows 7, but 10 Pro isn't terrible with delayed updates. I still haven't found the infamous 1809 on any of my machines because I have Windows Update set to delay those updates. As such, while it broke systems everywhere and has been pulled multiple times, I've been sitting pretty on the older, more stable version.

What I still don't like is the fact that when it comes, it'll likely reset a bunch of stuff I've configured to "default" settings. I'd rather be on LTSB.

I'll be doing what I've been doing for the past few years, running Windows 10 on all my computers.

Already on Windows 10. I liked Windows 7, but 10 Pro isn't terrible with delayed updates. I still haven't found the infamous 1809 on any of my machines because I have Windows Update set to delay those updates. As such, while it broke systems everywhere and has been pulled multiple times, I've been sitting pretty on the older, more stable version.

Even without delayed updates, I had to manually install it on my machines. I haven't got around to doing it on all of them yet even, so most of them are still running 1803.

What I still don't like is the fact that when it comes, it'll likely reset a bunch of stuff I've configured to "default" settings. I'd rather be on LTSB.

It didn't really reset anything major from what I can tell. At least nothing that a quick run of Anti-Beacon wasn't able to fix.
