Microsoft sets Oct. 31 as stop date for Windows 7 consumer PC sales

Gregg Keizer | Feb. 17, 2014
But extends end-of-sales date for business PCs running Windows 7 Professional.

The end-of-sales dates for Windows 7 are not linked in any way to the support schedule for the 2009 operating system. Microsoft will provide free non-security bug fixes and vulnerability patches for Windows 7 until Jan. 13, 2015 — called "mainstream support" — and follow that with a five-year stretch of "extended support" during which it will ship free security updates until Jan. 14, 2020.
