MS is no longer the same MS we had when XP approached EOL. Sadist Nutella and his cronies are too determined to force everyone to Win 10 to extend Win 7's and Office 10's EOL.

Have to agree with LF here. MS is too focused on getting everybody on Windows 10. Plus, I don't think they want another XP situation on their hands where users & businesses were still using it years after the EOL. I just can't see MS extending the EOL for 7.

I wouldn't be surprised if they try and cut the EOL for 8.1 early too. I doubt they'll want to support it with such a low market share until 2023.

They wouldn't make as much money if they kept an old OS and just improved it.
MS's racket: they publish faulty OS's before they're perfected, then they send years of updates, but the updates often don't install, then they fix or pull the updates, fix them and send them out again. After a few years, they stop updating, publish a new OS, then start the cycle again. We've been been living with this for 25 years. It's insane.

Therefore I am satisfied with the performance and stability of Windows 7. Also the main theme MS Office which is a good cocktail, Windows 7 and MS 10. By the time the date comes that they will not give more support, there will be another Windows 10 version>?

Please note that the Paid support will only be available to Volume licence Business customers, which would not be likely to be available to the retail consumer at an affordable price

There will be another version of Windows 10 this year Version 1809 (September Release?), and Two more during 2019 and possibly another one in 2020, around the end of life date for Windows 7.

The Next office release, Office 2019, is due at anytime in the next few months

If it's anything like the XP situation then there will be many people using 7 way past the 16 month EOL. I'll use it for a few more years, along with multiple 7 VMs I have set up, then fully switch over to 8.1 until 2023. After that... I have no idea yet! Perhaps Windows 10 will be something I want to use by then - I'm not optimistic right now though.

I suspect that by 2023, a lot of local OS functions will have been transferred to the Cloud, specifically to prevent users from controlling their own PCs.
