Does Windows 10 Mean The End Of Support For Earlier Systems?

A question we get asked a lot is how long will Microsoft support a particular operating system.  In fact, just the other day Gladie wrote:  “It’s my understanding, correct me if I’m wrong, but isn’t Microsoft stopping  support for all Windows  when 10 comes out.”

I will correct you, Gladie. Microsoft promises security support for operating systems for 10 years from their general release date. You can expect security support as follows:

Windows Vista will be supported until April 11, 2017

Windows 7 will be supported until January 14, 2020

Windows 8 will be supported until January 10, 2023.
