    Hello I was reading about the recently end of Mainstream support of Windows 7, they say in the Microsoft website that now Windows 7 start the "extended support" till 2020 and consist on security updates mostly but there is no specific.

    Do you guys know anything else?

    Mainstream support ended which means no added features, no free phone support. Extended support provides security/critical updates. Basically nothing changes that should affect the majority of users.

    Yeah, there will be no more "upgrades" just security patches and shit. Not that there were any visible "upgrades" to begin with. For an average, every day user, nothing has changed.

    Few years? From what I understand Win 10 should be released in 2015.

    Yep, but I wait till SP1 or something. Until all programs and devices will not work properly.

    I'm install WinXP in 2004 and Win7 in 2013. Yes, I love when system is stable))
