Windows 8 is Dead

Microsoft has killed the support for Windows 8.

Windows 8 has been the part of our laptops and PCs for nearly three years now.

The unfortunate fact is that the OS has faced a lot of problems since its inception.

Microsoft tried very hard to provide its classic Operating System with a touch-based future.

In the midst of all that, the company miserably failed. The new techniques by Microsoft proved to be quite harmful for the previous desktop experience we were all accustomed to.

After facing lot of rebuke and criticism, Microsoft worked hard to overcome the issues.

The company, in the end of 2013 introduced novel and improved changes to Windows and named it as Windows 8.1.

Soon after, Windows 10 were started to formalize. Recently, it seems that Microsoft is all geared up to overcome its mistake and to dust the Windows 8 out of reality.

If you look into the online support database a little too close, you would see that no new updates are planned for the Operating System from now onwards.

Ending the update support seems like cutting the first thread in ending the Windows 8 rendition, entirely.

For those who are the users of the same OS and are getting worried over the issue, you still have a lot of time to change and opt for the other options.

So, you can easily update to Windows 8.1 or even to the exclusive Windows 10 if you want.

More importantly, you can also downgrade to the long-forgotten Windows 7.

The Windows 7 is still active among thousands of PCs and laptops due to its popularity.

However, we are not so sure if Windows 7 will remain alive for long, so upgrading to the better version is the best choice you have got for now.
