Windows 7 in 2017 is so outdated that patches can’t keep it secure !!

Microsoft

Microsoft has kicked off its three-year countdown for Windows 7’s end of extended support, warning enterprises they’ll pay dearly for sticking with the platform’s outdated security compared with Windows 10.

Enterprises can of course delay upgrading until January 13, 2020, when extended support ends for the 2009 OS and it no longer receives security patches.

However, as Microsoft has warned, Windows 7, which moved to extended support in 2015, is outdated and will drive up operating costs from remediating malware attacks that wouldn’t penetrate Windows 10 systems.

Windows 7 “does not meet the requirements of modern technology, nor the high security requirements of IT departments”, said Markus Nitschke, head of Windows at Microsoft Germany.
