From July to 2020, Windows 7 will stop receiving official Microsoft support, which is likely to result in a large number of devices without security patches.
The study also highlighted how 79% of companies wait for Microsoft to release updates before installing them. Considering that some people are worried that a bad patch may cause trouble for their internal activities, the question of the reliability of the update may be behind.
The company said it expects 99% of the software running on Windows 7 to fully support Windows 10 and the remaining 1% will help.
Customer support for Windows 7 will still be available after January 2020, but the annual cost will be higher. In the first year after EOL, organizations will have to pay $50 for each Windows 7 device and then double it next year.
