Microsoft walks around with an ax: We did not manage to say goodbye but two weeks ago from Internet Explorer 14, now Microsoft also announces the cessation of support for Windows 8.1 in January 2023. As part of the cessation of support for its old products, and similar to what happened with Windows 7, Microsoft will soon start sending reminders to Windows 8 users Product support will be discontinued in January 2023, with no further updates coming out.



Anyone still using the operating system released in 2013 will be asked to upgrade to Windows 10 or risk an operating system that has no longer received long-term updates (ESUs), not even paid to businesses.

Windows 8.1 was an upgrade to the Windows 8 operating system, which came out only a year before, in which Microsoft jumped into the age of touch by introducing the tile interface.

The tile interface (also known as Metro) was unwelcome among users, so Microsoft came out with Windows 8.1, which brought back to life the mythical "Start" button and generally brought back to Windows the look of Windows - something Microsoft has already learned the lesson from and not repeated the mistake In

Windows 10.



In early 2023, those who are still using Windows 8.1 will have to make a decision: whether to upgrade their operating system or purchase a new computer.

The problem is that most of the systems running Windows 8.1 do not support Windows 11, the latest version of the operating system from Microsoft, due to the minimum requirements for relatively modern processors.

So the main option facing Windows 8.1 users is to upgrade to Windows 10, by purchasing a full version of it, Microsoft has announced.
