Microsoft ends retail sales of Windows 7 and 8

Microsoft ends retail sales of Windows 7 and 8
  • Windows 8.1 default version for PCs
  • Change penetrating in market
  • Stage set for Windows 10

 
 


Microsoft has officially stopped selling retail copies of some versions of Windows 7 and 8.

Though we have remained indifferent to the advancements of the Windows 8, we have surely been in love with Windows 7 for too long. So much so that we have very simply refused to adopt any other version that came after it. But Microsoft wasn’t going to put up with this for too long and it had announced that it would stop selling Windows 8 and 7. This is the only way Microsoft is going to force its customers to move on to the latest versions.

According to the statistics, some people are finally moving on to some other versions of Windows and this is setting the perfect stage for Windows 10 which is due to be released next year. Microsoft had stopped selling copies of Home Basic, Home Premium and Ultimate versions of Windows 7 from October 31st and now it is time for Windows 8 to go behind closed doors. With this change, there has been a change in both copies bought in shops or loaded on PCs and laptops. And for the time being, the default version on all the PCs would be Windows 8.1.




We don’t expect to see any drastic changes right away since this change is going to take some time to feed through the market because a great deal of PC makers have large stocks of older versions of Windows and will continue to sell PCs running the software. Those who would still be keen on getting a version of Windows 7 would be able to “downgrade” from 8.1 to Windows 7 Professional but relatively few PC firms offer this option.
