Micro$haft is $hafting W7-users, AGAIN

Why does Micro$haft make life so difficult?
Can't those Redmonders behave?
At least until 2020?

Be with it. Apple doesn't even support any of their OS for more than 2 years for the past 10 years and forces you to use High Sierra in multiple ways.

Yes true to form MS will try to make Window 7 as problematic as they can leading to EOL. Post 2020 deciding which Linux distro to navigate to will be the main objective.

Had the exact problem last week with an old Dell 820. Got tired of waiting. Spent 30 minutes and loaded Linux Mint 18.3. Never looking back. I love Windows 7 but Linux these days is doing it for me.

I'll be holding on to W7 as long as I can. I use too many Windows only programs that just can't be emulated in Wine. Windows 10 won't fly with me, and that start menu that belongs to Windows ME!

Take a T500 and smash it into my head. :x
