Re: Microsoft halts Windows7 support, no more hotfixes...

No feature updates it means that all the bugfixes provided by plenty of hotfixes won't be available anymore!

Not just no new features but any bug affecting performance and stability won't be fixed anymore.

Just security updates doesn't mean much if the system becomes less and less stable and less compatible with new software.

Also this will mean manufacturers will start dropping drivers support for Windows7 just like they did with WindowsXP.

This just means that Windows7, Windows2008 and Office2010 SP1 are dead.

At Microsoft are clearly completely insane, gone crazy.
