For Those Still on Win7

Recommended Posts

DX12 is being ported to Win7. Yes, only one game now but I think in the near future it will be everywhere -- see https://www.tomshardware.com/news/microsoft-backtracks-on-directx12-windows7,38800.html

It's a natural pattern.  Getting people off Windows 98 took many years.  FSX is still a good example.

Doesn't windows 7 support end in less than 12 months?

Planning on calling MS support. Good luck with that one! Wouldn't get anywhere when they had support. 🙂

Running windows 7 after next year is up to the user nothing to stop them, the only issue that may come up in future is the hardware manufactures are unlikely to make there products backward compatible for software that they don't need, it`s a bit like flight sim why have they dropped windows XP support, because of progress and what new hardware is capable of otherwise we would stand still. And it`s mainly the corporate users that are slow to update.  most home PCs are now on windows 10 and growing according to the latest.
