Windows 7 Won't Shrink Fast Enough

@ 2017/11/11
If Windows 7 were a person, it would be that party guest who stayed well past welcome, lingering long after everyone else has left, after the hosts have, in fact, gone to bed. According to metrics vendor Net Applications, its user share in October was 46.6%, a decline of six-tenths of a percentage point. The faster Windows 7 relinquishes its user share, the less the chance that businesses will find themselves running unpatched, and thus, vulnerable, machines. No one wants a repeat of the panicky last few months of Windows XP's lifespan, when companies blew through IT budgets scrambling to purge the obsolete OS. Yet Windows 7 remains behind the pace set by XP.
