The popular gaming platform, Steam, has given Windows 7 and 8 users just about 9 more months to upgrade before being turned off. Fortunately, this isn’t a large impact, as they represent about 2% of Steam users, but it does show that we are moving away from Windows 7. People with sufficient enough hardware should be able to upgrade wo Windows 10, which is great, but Windows 11 will be out of reach for most any hardware that has Windows 7 or 8 installed natively.

Windows 7 still runs on more Steam PCs than every version of Linux combined.
