When will support end for Windows 7 ?

Posted

I do know Microsoft extended support ends on Jan. 14, 2020. I'd like to know if anyone knows if there has been a date set for Windows 7 support to end.

I'm not sure anyone has time to think about how to _stop_ supporting Windows 7.

Eventually it will occur when someone introduces code that can only run on Windows 8 and higher, and can't be made to work on Windows 7. You'll probably hear the screaming months in advance if you keep an eye on /r/Firefox: https://www.reddit.com/r/firefox/
