    Some relief for those not able or willing to migrate to Windows 10.

    Microsoft plans to end support for the company's operating systems Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 in January 2020. Enterprise customers may purchase extensions to extend support by up to three years and some other exceptions apply that extend official support.Most businesses and all home customers won't be able to extend support officially.

    Security company 0Patch announced on September 21, 2019 that it will step in and "security-adopt" Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 to create and distribute security patches for these operating system versions after January 2020.

    That would be pretty cool if it happens. I was planning on going Win10 this fall, I got a LTSB copy but my 7 on Ryzen is working just fine and set up the way I like it.
