Windows 7 lovers it's time to make a move. Very soon Windows 7 will no longer be available. Here's what you need to know.


Well, get ready for this. While Microsoft will continue to provide security updates for Windows 7 until 2020, you may not be able to purchase a new Windows 7 computer after Oct. 31 2014. This is what Microsoft calls the end-of-sales date for PCs running Windows 7.

You may still be able to purchase the business edition of Windows 7 on a new computer, but you will pay a big premium for that. So if don't like Windows 8 but you need a new computer, your "window" of opportunity is closing fast.
