Microsoft has announced Windows 7’s end-of-life (EOL) date, and it will be on January 14, 2020. At the moment, Windows 7 is still at an extended support phase, but once that’s done and EOL kicks in, Microsoft will stop releasing updates and patches, and no longer offer help and support to the millions of users who may still be using Windows 7. This includes security patches that protect the operating system (OS) from breaches, threats, and exploits.
Every technology trend comes with its share of professionals...and greenhorns. Cloud computing is the most recent example, and some small business owners struggle to distinguish between providers that know what they’re doing and those who are taking advantage of the spike in demand.
