The Free Software Foundation wants Microsoft to keep Windows 7 alive as a free operating system. Microsoft stopped providing free security patches and support for Windows 7 earlier this month. Although the popular operating system reached its 10th birthday last fall, some 200 million PCs around the globe still run it, according to industry estimates. Users include small business owners, some larger companies, government agencies, and hordes of consumers worldwide. Microsoft expects most Windows 7 users to migrate to Windows 10.

LOL That IS really a good joke! xD M$ never EVER will attend to that demand. The reason is blatantly obvious. If w7 becomes free, nearly EVERYBODY will ditch w10 and flee to w7. That's it. No more, no less. So good luck with that ;-)
