Would you pay Microsoft for extended Windows 7 support?
#1
Information 
[Image: windows_7_professional.png]
Quote:Windows 7 support ends in January 2020 and there is nothing that consumers and small business customers-- read non-Enterprise customers -- can do about it. Microsoft won't release security updates, any update to be precise, for consumer versions of Windows 7 after January 2020.

Microsoft announced last year that it would offer paid extended support options to volume licensing customers.

The company did not reveal any pricing back then but mentioned that support would be extended for a maximum of three years after support end and that extending support would become more expensive per year.

Mary Jo Foley got her hands on the extended support costs and other information related to extending the support period of the Windows 7 operating system.

Microsoft will charge Enterprise customers the following amount of money per year and device according to her information:

Windows 7 Professional
  • Year 1 -- $50 per device

  • Year 2 -- $100 per device

  • Year 3 -- $200 per device
Windows 7 Enterprise
  • Year 1 -- $25 per device

  • Year 2 -- $50 per device

  • Year 3 -- $100 per device

No, of course not.
The price for a key is substantially high so paying more means a double payment for the same thing.
They should have updated it for lifetime not forcing users to upgrade to get necessary updates.
This policy is not fair IMO.
