Windows 7: How to keep receiving the Windows 7 Updates until 2022?

How to keep receiving the Windows 7 Updates until 2022?

As we all know, Microsoft has recently ended providing updates for Windows 7.

However, updates for XP also "officially ended" on 2014, yet with a simple registry edit any XP user could still receive updates until last year, when the end of support for Windows XP Embedded was reached.

Now, Windows 7 will still receive updates at least until 2022 as long as the user pays for them:

Businesses and education Windows 7 users will be able to pay for extended security updates, but it could be a costly venture for some. Extended updates for Windows 7 Enterprise is approximately $25 per machine, and the cost doubles to $50 per device in 2021 and again to $100 in 2022. It’s even worse for Windows 7 Pro users, which starts at $50 per machine and jumps to $100 in 2021 and $200 in 2022.
Yes that is correct, if you pay Microsoft you'll keep getting updates. Is Bill short on cash or something? Did he suddenly loss his 110 billion worth somehow?

In short, how and where do you expect these updates will be available to the millions of users who would really like to help Microsoft become richer, but just can't afford it?

Windows 7 Professional SP1 - x64 [Non-UEFI Boot]

It is more about to kill a product that is at end of his life to keep pushing the new OS to future evolutions. We didn't say much at end of Windows XP SP3 life and Vista, i was in first to enjoy the brand new Windows 7 at the time.
Now the debate is still open for pros & cons as long as Windows 7 will stand correct. Unfortunately computing things evolute , not always the way we could like.

PS: At that price better pay (MS thoughts?) a Pro license for the new OS...I mean to end user, after entreprises could be cheaper for them.
