Microsoft has announced that as of January 2020, it will be ending support for its popular Windows 7 Operating System. This is the end of life (known in the industry as EOL) for Windows 7, which first entered service in October of 2009 and at its peak had more than 630 million licenses sold worldwide. But all good things must come to an end: find out what the end of life for Windows 7 means for those organizations still using this once-popular operating system.
We recently blogged about holding off on upgrading to Windows 10, based on the fact that users have up to a year to take advantage of Microsoft’s free upgrade offer and a few other minor concerns that have been identified with the software.
But eventually, you’ll probably want to go forward with that upgrade. How can you know when it’s time to go ahead and upgrade?
With the latest upgrade of the Windows operating system to Windows 10, many people are asking whether Tolar Systems recommends moving to the new version. It’s a great question. Windows 10 offers some advantages over previous operating systems, such as better mouse navigation, an improved browser, facial recognition, and Microsoft’s new digital assistant, Cortana - but there are still some reasons why we are suggesting clients hold off on upgrading, at least for now.
