Microsoft has done with Windows 7 !

Windows 7 is the most popular OS in the world with a market share of about 46%. It's successor is still trying to catch up with Windows 8.1 released few days ago. In the mean time Microsoft has managed to remove the official Windows 7 page from it's Windows website. Clicking on Windows 7 link in the bottom will take you to the support page for Windows 7 rather than showing up the Windows 7 official page with features and tips and tricks ! You can see the official page of Windows 7 from this link. This link may expire at any time !

This is a expected move from Microsoft as they do not want to get XP scenario when Windows 7 expires.It's still a long time to go but they have to get users to Windows 8.1 and the future Windows versions.Don't worry Windows 7 is still a modern choice and it's a very capable OS and most importantly it is still under main stream support of Microsoft which will end on 2015.The extended support date is set as 2020. You have got seven more years to move off from Windows 7.Microsoft sees Metro UI and Windows 8 as the future of Windows !
