Microsoft last week announced that within the next 18 months, it will end support for Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 on machines equipped with Intel's 6th generation Core processors, also known as "Skylake." As of mid-July next year, Windows 10 will be the only supported Windows platform on Skylake systems, and only the most critical security fixes will be released for earlier versions of Windows -- and then only if the fixes don't cause compatibility problems for non-Skylake systems running Windows 7 and 8.1.

Well....that was quick, I just adopted Win7 to two of my laptop's, still running XP on the desktop some software runs more reliably on it than Win7 and It rarely see's access to the Internet so I'm not worried. I just wish Microsoft would quit shipping Alpha and Beta test software, I mean they were still plugging holes in XP up until Apr 2014.
Vista was only out 3yrs before they rushed out 7, so I guess just get some good anti-virus and run it often on whatever ver of Windows you hate the least.
