When the time came for Microsoft to upgrade the operating system XP(the most popular operating system of Microsoft), they brought Vista in the year 2007. But Vista turned out to be a disaster for the company, as it was not at all stable and had a lot of issues with the drivers and all the technicalities. Microsoft soon realized this, and came out with the operating system Windows 7 (2009) in 2 years of the release of Vista.
Windows 7 turned out be one of the best operating systems of Microsoft, the only operating system that stands above Windows 7 in popularity till now is Windows XP. The laptops, and PCs at that time did do a great business because of the stable operating system. After it gained the most popularity that it could, three years later Windows 8 (2012) released. Even Windows 8 had a lot of bugs, and driver issues with the upgradation, so Windows 8.1 (2013) came up with all the bug fixes of the last operating system. Then Windows 10 (2015) released, and the main purpose of it was to integrate the Windows 7 features with Windows 8, and few days ago it surpassed the popularity of Windows 7.
Microsoft said, “All good things must come to an end, even Windows 7. After 14 January 2020, Microsoft will no longer provide security updates or support for PCs running Windows 7. Windows 7 however, would also still be available for installation and activation after January 14, 2020. You can continue to use 'Windows 7', but once support ends, your PC will become more vulnerable to security risks. To avoid security risks and viruses, Microsoft recommends that you consider upgrading to Windows 10”
You can upgrade your Windows 7, 8, and 8.1 system to Windows 10 if the minimum requirements for the OS is fulfilled.
