The greatest risk W7 users face is from Microsoft. Otherwise, the article is full of bull biscuits, starting with the claim Win 7 is ten years old.

The article itself exposes the depths that MS is willing to go, to get W7 users over to W10.

Telling users that they are "using W7 at their own peril" is ridiculous. Scare tactics - works on the novice and the mainstream media.

W10 a turd? Nah, it's a vessel of powerful fertilizer with the potential to grow profits.

Microsoft will come out with any old crap these days to get people to switch to Windows 10.
They're not doing themselves any favours at all. All that's happening is more people are losing faith in them. Forcing the upgrade and getting pushy all the time will just have the opposite effect and push people away from future MS software.

Not to worry.
Microsoft is a monopoly (which means they can do anything they want).
Your opinions are insignificant. They need some SERIOUS competition....

Depends on just how many Microsoft products a person rely on
MSE/ Windows Defender/ ie11/ office outlook and website sharing features and also opening every link sent to you in office outlook....
I say it's pretty accurate

As long as a user escapes M$ utilities such as those I'd say the risk is minimized quite a bit in win-7.

M$ has a product they are pushing I don't believe that's a new concept

What is accurate - the article or what the VP from Microsoft had to say?

The above remark is saying those Microsoft products I listed put you at more risk not less risk.

Sorry, I still do not understand your point. MSE, WD etc are high risk products that make W7 high risk? However, they are not high risk in W10.
