Re: Windows 7 Pro LIVES!
@jastroff tough to say! It's clear we're seeing a major push for Microsoft's Win10 strategy in 2016. I don't think it's a coincidence that Microsoft confirmed the end-of-sales date for Windows 7 Pro around the same time it announced it will be automatically loading Windows 10 onto consumer PCs starting next year. Clearly, it's hoping to move on from all older versions of Windows, and it's trying to get businesses to do the same.
Will 10/31/2016 actually mark end-of-sales for Windows 7 Pro? It could depend on how businesses upgrade to Win10 this year into next. After all, the poor response to Windows 8 caused the delay of end-of-sales for 7 Pro. Right now Win10 business adoption is over 8 mil, but that could slow -- and how will MSFT react if it does?
