The end of Windows 7 updates, announced by Microsoft in the spring of 2020, has lowered the market share of the operating system and increased that of Windows 10 accordingly.
Faced with the announced end of Windows 7 on beginning of the year 2020many users quickly went to newer versions of the operating system. In this regard, the news has benefited enormously Windows 10, whose sales volume has been increased upwards.
The end of Windows 7 is planned for the first half of 2020
It's official, the giant Microsoft has chosen not to feed Windows 7, starting in the spring of 2020. The operating system will of course continue to work, but will not offer updates. In fact The popularity of other Windows operating systems has increased after this announcement, and in particular that of Windows 10.
An increase in market share for Windows 10
The news did not go unnoticed by users, who quickly looked at Windows 10. For the month of February, while the news was not yet widely available to users, W10 has more than a market share 3%, that is much more than normal. Windows 7 simultaneously reduced its market share by almost 2%. We can therefore derive a direct transfer of Windows 7 users from the latest operating system proposed by Microsoft.
Why is it necessary to keep an up-to-date operating system?
These are mainly reasons of safety and stability that are put forward. Operating systems provide a basis for running a complete software ecosystem and enable users to surf the Internet. The many updates that are proposed therefore ensure a stable operating system that secures the data, even if this goal is sometimes not achieved.

Moreover, updates while surfing the internet can protect themselves against many attacks, and here too secure the data. Microsoft is likely to use these arguments to encourage current Windows 7 users to change their operating systems in favor of Windows 10.
