  • Support for Windows 7 will end on January 14th 2020 (next year). It is never a good idea to use an unsupported OS, as it means that any security holes, vulnerabilities, etc. that will be discovered following that date won't get fixed, and therefore, the system will be vulnerable to these. Also, most security vulnerabilities that are found in newer systems will also affect older ones, so as long as vulnerabilities will be found in Windows 8.1, Windows 10, etc. there's a big chance that these will affect Windows 7 too, but in this case, they won't be patched.

    If you ask me, Windows 10 is already pretty mature, and as someone who worked on migration around 900 users from Windows XP to Windows 7 (back then), and then Windows 7 to Windows 10, I can tell you that pretty much all of them barely had any issues getting used to it.
