WINDOWS 7 CODEBASE WILL BE UPDATED RIGHT TILL 2026

Good news to Windows 7 users! Operating system will be updated until at least of winter 2026, despite yellow pressed tabloid propaganda that such thing will not happen. Even microsoft official documents show that [system is “dead”] right from winter of 2020. But what moron listen and trust to official and moreover public statements? The main trick here is that Windows 7 is based upon Windows NT 6.0 codebase. This is the same codebase upon Windows 2008 R2 was build.

UPDATED ON: 2023-08-24 This is a short clipping from [Complete tweaking guide for Windows 7] article.

To complete this tuning like a boss do the following on all external flash devices you have.

HOW TO STAY SAFE WHEN USING OB-SOUL-EEE-TEE WINDOWS 7 IN 2023?

I often get asked regarding Windows 7 safety especially in 2023. "Is it safe to use such old operating system?" "What about security?" "How about modern viruses?" .... …. and many other similar questions. Funny thing that people who are asking about security don’t give a damn about privacy. Yeah, that’s quite different definitions for sure, but from my point of view they always come together hand in hand. The main and the most important security police officer is your head.
