Windows 7 RIP

RIP Windows. Long Live Windows!

When windows 7 launched in 2009 it was lauded as the successor to XP that Vista should have been but wasn’t.

Windows 7 was in effect a modernized Windows XP that cut back on many of the frivolous features and interactions of Vista. Many of you might even still be on Windows 7 if you’ve been using the computer you’re on for more than a few years.

That said, It’s definitely time to think about moving on.

Microsoft ended extended support for Windows 7 this January, so if something goes wrong with, you’re pretty much on your own. As good as it is, Windows 7 relies heavily on third party tools to monitor system security.

The good news is that Windows 10 is very much a worthy upgrade, especially with its capable inbuilt virus and malware protections. It has the same ease of use as Windows 7 and won’t use vastly more system resources.

You might be able to download, install and activate Windows 10 on your Windows 7 machines using their original licenses, but if you’d rather be safe than sorry, we at Key Comm have experience managing IT for businesses. Just message us.

Just for kicks, and to appreciate how good you’ve had it all these years, here’s TechRadar’s raving review of Windows 7.
