Microsoft offers paid Windows 7 Extended Security Updates to Jan. 2023

Quote:
As previously announced, Windows 7 extended support is ending January 14, 2020. While many of you are already well on your way in deploying Windows 10, we understand that everyone is at a different point in the upgrade process.

With that in mind, today we are announcing that we will offer paid Windows 7 Extended Security Updates (ESU) through January 2023. The Windows 7 ESU will be sold on a per-device basis and the price will increase each year. Windows 7 ESUs will be available to all Windows 7 Professional and Windows 7 Enterprise customers in Volume Licensing, with a discount to customers with Windows software assurance, Windows 10 Enterprise or Windows 10 Education subscriptions. In addition, Office 365 ProPlus will be supported on devices with active Windows 7 Extended Security Updates (ESU) through January 2023. This means that customers who purchase the Windows 7 ESU will be able to continue to run Office 365 ProPlus.

Please reach out to your partner or Microsoft account team for further details.

a LOT !

Seriously I would not have a clue what the Volume licence payers would be asked to pay for a device support package, the reason for this is because the actual licence cost already varies greatly.

A company running 100 devices on Windows 7 Pro on VL will pay a lot more per unit than will a company running 1000 copies of enterprise.

There was a similar system in place with companies, (and Schools, and Governments), when windows XP was EOL, but that offer as I would expect the one for Windows 7, was not on offer to private users

But I remember seeing a way that individuals could get around that, although I didn't use it. I kept XP safely on the web for 3 years, but finally gave it up when I needed W7 for online work.

There wa a way with Vista to use security updates for the core functions by use of the relevant server downloads. This is a possibility too for Windows 7 but of course there may not be the support for a range of the non server functionality.

That's applying 2008 updates on Vista. However 2008 R2 goes out of support on the same day as 7 so that won't be applicable to 7.
