Windows 7 is not supported by newer architectures and will not get any new technologies (like NVME support) and it will only get CRITICAL updates from now until 2020. since it is only getting critical updates it is practically dead isnt it?

yes. you shouldn't be using it anyways, and if you have old or obsolete hardware you should look into replacing the system or devising a custom solution if the system is critical.

Not everybody likes what you like. They may not like Win8.1+, and they may not like the alternatives of Win7.

honestly windows 8.1 might be my next best bet but they are doing a similar thing with that too Microsoft is only concerned on 10

Try playing a Win 95 game on Win7.

What are you on about? NVMe works just fine in Windows 7 provided you have the drivers for it.

Until Microsoft say so. It is still much alive and the critical update is still activate. My other laptop update from Windows 7 to Windows 10 because I feel that it is the time to do so. I have MAC, by the way.

i was just using NVME as an example you cannot put anything newer than skylake and install windows 7 on it
you can, i just did installed windows 7 in my kaby lake in my samsung nvme a month ago..
but trying to get updates throws up the "your cpu is too new" message, i am sure there is a not official way of getting rid of that shit and still get the updates tough
but installing and using windows 7 works fine

however, windows 7 or older will give you pain with usb 3.0 in some cases, and that doesn't matter to which cpu you have
