NHS still has a lot of computers still running Windows 7

The expiry of Windows 7 earlier has claimed a few victims, even though there was a considerable amount of time for warning from Microsoft. Earlier in January the German government failed to upgrade 33,000 machines from Windows 7 and has since had to pay out over $800,000 in fees to Microsoft. The NHS has now failed to upgrade nearly half a million computers from Windows 7 to Windows 10, even […]

German government is still using Windows 7, now has to pay Microsoft for extended support

Microsoft dropped support for Windows 7 earlier this month on January 14th, and it may a pain for consumers to upgrade, even though users should have upgraded during the time Microsoft was making the upgrade free of charge to Windows 10. It is a lot more time consuming for enterprise environments to handle the upgrades to a new operating system. Microsoft dropped the news that Windows 7 would become end […]

Support for Windows 7 is ending on January 14th 2020

But that is how much time is left until Microsoft is ending official support for Windows 7, an operating system which was released nearly ten years ago. Windows 7 is still out […]

Windows 10 now has 27 million installs and already 3.7% market share

Windows 10 is doing extremely well at the moment, with being only just two weeks into the new operating system being available, today it already has 3.78% market share – it’s working its way to be a huge hit. Originally launched two weeks ago on the 29th July, two days later we reported that 14m people had already downloaded it. Opinion: Windows 8 sucked. Back in April 2013, statistics revealed […]

Windows 10 will be a free upgrade for Windows 7 users and later

Along with all the Windows news last week, Microsoft also, for the first time ever, made the operating system free. Microsoft is also classing Windows 10 as an internet service. In the first half an hour, Terry announced that Windows 10 will free for users on Windows 7, Windows 8.1 and Windows Phone 8.1 – while this is something that is very much like Apple’s OS X, having the Windows […]
