Another blog this month about something happening in six months, although you'll notice no inverted commas on this one as we're far more confident it's true! We're now entering the final few months of Windows 7 support by Microsoft.
As we previously reported, Microsoft announced that the new version of Windows, "Windows 10", will be released this summer. They have now confirmed that this new OS will release on July 29th. As many of you will already be aware, Windows 10 is going to be made available as a free upgrade for (most) users of Windows 7 and 8 for the first year.
There's now fewer than 150 days until the 2003 edition of Microsoft's popular server operating system is out of support. Much like the recent end of support for Windows XP, this means that this edition of their operating system will no longer receive any updates (security related or otherwise). Again, much like XP, this will leave machine / servers running this operating systems highly vulnerable to attacks as new flaws in the system are found and remain unpatched.
Microsoft have just revealed their new operating system - Windows 10. No, we don't know what happened to Windows 9 either! Nonetheless, the main aim of this new operating system will be to create a single interface that will work across many devices - desktop machines, tablets, mobiles, and even Xbox consoles. There will be a single app store that will service all of these machines.
