Microsoft has made it its goal to push Windows 10 in everyone’s home and make it the one and only operating system version used among all PC consumers. However, that journey is long and implies undoing a lot of what Microsoft has done in the past, including everything leading up to Windows 10.
Since the release of Windows 10, it has been fairly obvious that it benefited from the most support from its developer, which announced that it would also be the last version released. Windows 10 will not have a successor, but instead will receive a steady flow of updates and content in the form of both small and large patches.
While a considerable amount of Windows users have migrated to Windows 10, there is still a huge market share that remains unconvinced about Microsoft’s latest efforts. Microsoft even went as far as canceling some of the extended support for the other Windows versions, making sure that everyone would eventually come over. Even after announcing the end of support for Windows 7, that OS continues to be an all time fan favorite, which can be observed in the market shares.
Currently, Windows 7 stands firmly in the way of Windows 10’s ascension, with a massive following refusing to update to Windows 10 despite not having developer support anymore. Microsoft warns Windows 7 users about the dangers of utilizing an OS version without support and how vulnerable they actually are.
To be fair, Microsoft did a terrific job with Windows 7 and they have no one but themselves to blame for this situation. On a lighter note, we can assume that not making such a great OS in the first place wouldn’t have caused them so much headache in the long run. But of course that is far from a simple matter and it would probably be better Microsoft to aspire for reaching the heights of Windows 7 rather than try to push people towards the newer OS will tons of ads within the OS as well as cutting off extended support for older OS version.
