Extended support of security updates will run for another 5 years. By then everyone will have moved on to either a Linux desktop software, or windows 10. A few may keep using windows 8, but if windows ME taught us anything.....I doubt it.

I'll keep using my 2006 Win Vista/7 laptop until 2020 when the extended support ends if the laptop is still alive. It's rarely used and is my real backup computer.

It was Vista when I purchased it but I soon installed the Win 7 upgrade and is the only computer I don't mess with or tweak. It stays stock and has ran flawlessly . Replaced a fan once with Bob's help. I've never had to reload the system or anything. and won't be in a year.

Windows 7 is my favorite MS OS but 10 is HOT !

We'll talk about it in 2020

I'm going to see out Win 7. By then we should be on Win 46.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
