Staying On Windows 7: Extended Support

In September, Microsoft disclosed that it will continue to offer security updates for Windows 7, but for a fee. "We understand that everyone is at a different point in the upgrade process," wrote Jared Spataro, corporate vice president for Microsoft 365, in a blog post. Those updates will delay the inevitable upgrade to Windows 10 for three more years, with Microsoft pledging to offer Windows 7 security support through January of 2023. Perhaps to incentivize a Windows 10 migration sooner rather than later, the price of Windows 7 Extended Support will in fact go up over time: the first year for Windows Enterprise users will cost $25/device, while the second year will cost $50/device and the third year will cost $100/device. Extended Support for Windows 7 Pro will be even more costly: $50/device for the first year, $100/device for the second year and $200/device for the third year.
