    January 14, 2020 is a special day for Microsoft and millions of computer users and organizations around the world. It is the day that Microsoft's Windows 7 operating system will receive the last batch of security updates as it reaches end of support on that day.

    Windows Server 2008 and Windows Server 2008 R2 will reach end of support on that day as well after reaching end of mainstream support in 2015.

    The end of support date affects millions of users who run Windows 7 and also 184 million devices run by commercial entities around the world (excluding China).

    While some organizations may purchase extensions to get continued support for devices, most need to either migrate existing systems to another operating system or acquire new machines with a new operating system instead.

    Microsoft wants company partners like Dell or HP to focus much of their effort in this regard on the Device as a Service model that is more lucrative than one-off sells with support agreements.
