微软正在取消对Windows 7的支持

2020-1-15 15:43

这是Windows 7的终结。

 

从周二开始,微软将不再支持这个已有11年历史的操作系统。对于用户来说,这意味着微软将停止为Windows 7提供更新和安全补丁。

 

根据NetMarketShare的数据,这些变化将影响数亿人,因为超过三分之一的个人电脑使用Windows 7。这个数字略低于最流行的个人电脑操作系统Windows 10,后者占据了全球约一半的个人电脑。微软(Microsoft)最近的数据显示,Windows 10在9亿部设备上使用。


微软表示,周二之后,Windows 7用户仍然可以使用他们的电脑,但该公司警告称,他们将面临“更大的病毒和恶意软件风险”。

 

该公司鼓励人们以139美元的价格升级到Windows 10,或者购买运行Windows 10的新设备,前提是他们的电脑已经使用了三年以上。早在四年多前微软发布最新操作系统时,它就曾提供从Windows 7到Windows 10的免费升级。


与其他操作系统生产商一样,微软经常会停止对其过时软件的支持。它在2016年停止支持Windows 8,在2014年停止支持Windows XP。

 

Windows 10于2015年发布,包括几项对备受嘲笑的Windows 8的更新,包括改进的外观、使用Cortana语音助手的能力以及增强的安全功能。

 

It's the end of the line for Windows 7.

 

Microsoft will no longer support the 11-year-old operating system as of Tuesday. For users, that means Microsoft will stop providing updates and security patches for Windows 7.
 
The changes will affect hundreds of millions of people because more than one-third of PCs use Windows 7, according to NetMarketShare. That is slightly fewer than Windows 10, the most popular PC operating system, which is on about half of the world's personal computers. Windows 10 is used on 900 million devices, according to recent numbers from Microsoft.
 
Microsoft said that Windows 7 users can still use their computers after Tuesday, but the company warns they will be at "greater risk for viruses and malware."
 
The company is encouraging people to upgrade to Windows 10 for $139 or buy a new device running Windows 10 if their computer is more than three years old. It previously offered a free upgrade from Windows 7 to Windows 10 when Microsoft launched its latest operating system more than four years ago.
 
Like other operating system makers, Microsoft regularly ends support for its outdated software. It stopped supporting Windows 8 in 2016 and Windows XP in 2014.
Windows 10 launched in 2015 and included several updates to the largely derided Windows 8, including a revamped appearance, the ability to use the Cortana voice assistant and enhanced security features.
