  • Microsoft announces that US voting systems running Win7 will get free updates through the 2020 elections

    Per MS corporate VP Tom Burt:

    As we head into the 2020 elections, we know there is a relatively small but still significant number of certified voting machines in operation running on Windows 7. We also know that transitioning to machines running newer operating systems in time for the 2020 election may not be possible for a number of reasons, including the lengthy voting machine certification process

    Gotta wonder how small “relative” is, but it’s the right decision.
