FYI: Formal End Of Lifecycle Date For Win OS 7/8



FYI: MS formally announces that to buy a NEW PC that comes with Windows 7 or 8.1 you've got less than a year.

From CNET.com (11/03/15)

Updated late October, Microsoft's "Windows lifecycle fact sheet" shows October 31, 2016, as the "end of sales for PCs with Windows preinstalled" for both Windows 7 Professional and Windows 8.1. After that date, the only choice for consumers will be to purchase new computers with Windows 10 installed. The lone exception will be businesses with license agreements that entitle them to choose which version of Windows they want preinstalled.

Stay tuned: MS being MS just how long do you think it will be before the rollout date for MS OS 11 will be announced? ????
