    Default Microsoft warns of Windows 7 RTM's imminent loss of support

    Quote
    Windows 7 users will have install Service Pack 1 if they want to continue to receive security fixes and other support beyond April 9th.
    With the release of a Service Pack, Microsoft's policy is to support the old version for two years. Windows 7 Service Pack 1 was released on 22nd February, 2011, so the phasing out of support is happening more or less on schedule.
    In spite of a growing number of post-Service Pack 1 fixes and updates, Microsoft has shown no signs of shipping a second Service Pack. Should Service Pack 1 be the sole major update for Windows 7, it will continue to receive mainstream support—which encompasses both security updates, non-security bugfixes, and free phone support—until 13th January 2015.
    Extended support—security fixes and paid incidents only—will continue until 14th January 2020.

    Looks like I'll be switching to linux some time before 2015 then, and only use Windows in a Virtual Machine for gaming.
