  • Foley: Win7 Extended Support Updates will cost two arms and three legs

    Posted on February 6th, 2019 at 06:02 admin Comment on the AskWoody Lounge

    Mary Jo Foley, posting on ZDNet, has come across some official information about the price of extended support for Win7 — security patches to be delivered after Win7 reaches end of life on January 14, 2020.

    If your organization’s running Win7 Pro, it’ll cost $50 per device for the first year, $100 for the second and $200 for the third.

    For Win7 Enterprise, it’s $25, $50 and $100.

    You have to be a volume licensing “active customer” in order to qualify to spend the extra bucks.

    Microsoft hasn’t confirmed the numbers.
