Windows 7 EOL / Office 2019
« on: Saturday, 03 February, 2018 @ 13:36:41 »
Extended support for MS Windows 7 with SP1 ends 14/01/2020, a little under two years from now.
Extended support for MS Office 2010 ends 13/10/2020, a little over two years from now.
The programs will still work as normal after these dates but will not receive any further updates/patches.
When will Microsoft end support for your version of Windows or Office?

Microsoft Office 2019 Will Work on Windows 10 Exclusively

Microsoft announced yesterday that future versions of the standalone Office 2019 app will work on Windows 10 versions exclusively.

The Redmond-based company recommends that users with older versions of the Windows operating system use the company’s Office 365 service instead, or update to Windows 10.

The announcement, detailed in a servicing and support update here, is a clear and obvious move to drive more customers to Microsoft's paid Office 365 service. The move might irk some customers who will likely choose to move to alternative apps, such as the open-source LibreOffice suite.
