Why should you upgrade?
Though it was groundbreaking at release, Windows 7 is reaching its end of life. Support has slowly been tapering off on certain computers already, and will end completely as of January 14th, 2020. No more feature updates will be released. Security updates will be released through the end of the support cycle, but not after that.
Once support for an operating system like Windows 7 ends, it becomes much more vulnerable to viruses, malware, and errors. When Microsoft is no longer supporting it, the unsupported software — very much like an out of warranty appliance — becomes much more difficult to maintain and repair. Although very little is likely to change for you day-to-day, any issues with your operating system could cause you to lose your data – everyone’s worst nightmare!
If your computer is older than 2015, it most likely has Windows 7 installed. If you want to know whether you need to upgrade, what it will cost, or just don’t want to install it yourself, Cherry Tree Technology is here to help.
