Microsoft wants Windows 7 users to migrate to Windows 10 for security reasons
Microsoft is currently in a complicated position. Although some might argue it’s not complicated at all, there is room for debate. The reality of things however, is that Microsoft is in a competition with itself because while Windows 10 has seen a large market share takeover, there is still a lot left to go.
Currently, stubborn Windows 7 users won’t give in, something Microsoft wants to add that 20% market share to Windows 10. Microsoft seems to be having difficulties when it comes to convincing those users to switch and we guess you could say that it’s its own fault for making Windows 7 so well.
Running an operating system that is no longer supported by the developer presents extreme security risks. Avoiding this type of situation can help avoid a lot of other complications, something neither users or Microsoft want to see.
Microsoft is pushing people towards Windows 10
Through their subsidiary in Germany, Microsoft has come out with a statement that encourages people to switch over to the growing Windows 10 platform and leave Windows 7 behind. According to that statement, Windows 7 is no longer geared to handle the problems and security threats an operating system deals with today. While it had a good run, Windows 7’s reign must unfortunately come to and end.
Microsoft further pats its own back as it praises the achievements and advances made by Windows 10 in contrast with its predecessors. There is no doubt that Windows 7 cannot stand on equal ground with Windows 10 in terms of security and the available resources granted by being backed up by Microsoft. It’s clear that the latter is desperately trying to get people to switch to their newer OS.
