Windows 7 support is now only two days away. Winning the hearts of users, Windows 7 is not the only operating system that has reached the end of its life. Ubuntu will bid farewell to support on May 19.
There is no doubt that the Windows 7 operating system has proven itself and won the hearts of many computer users. Of course, the fact that Windows 8, Windows 8.1 and Window 10 operating systems are not as popular as Windows 7 is a big factor. Unfortunately, Windows 7 is about to end its life. Just two days later, on January 14, Microsoft’s support for Windows 7 is no longer available. Therefore, users are recommended to update their operating systems with Windows 10 or Linux as soon as possible.
Of course, the Linux operating system does not have much life. For example, Microsoft’s support for Windows 7 continued for more than a decade. However, Ubuntu versions that Canonical does not offer long-term support (non-LTS) are not supported even for ten months. This means that if you get a non-LTS operating system, you can only get support for a period of nine months. For example, Ubuntu 19.04 operating system support ends on January 23, 2020.
Of course, the life of all Ubuntu operating systems is not limited to just nine months:
Long-term versions of Ubuntu, such as Ubuntu 18.04 LTS (Bionic Beaver), have free support for a period of five years. In addition, even after the free support of the Bionic Beaver is finished in April 2023, you can get support for another five years by paying an additional fee. This means that Ubuntu has been providing support for a total of ten years, providing half of it is paid. Windows 7, on the other hand, had never burned the pocket of its users for more than a decade. Of course it is not right to compare these two different operating systems.
As a result, this is a fact; Microsoft Windows 7 and Canonical Ubuntu 19.04 users will have big decisions this month should make. Operating systems are no longer available for support, and time is running out to make a decision.
