After ruling the OS platforms flawlessly for the past eleven years, Windows 7 has now reached the end of life phase. Window 7 users will no longer be offered with the security fixes from Microsoft, and there is nothing to be shocked about this.

Windows 7 users can enjoy the free OS services if the computing system falls under the following criteria
Software: Windows 7 SP1
Processor: 1GHz or faster processor
RAM: 1GB for 32-bit or 2GB for 64-bit
Hard disk space: 16GB for 32-bit OS or 20GB for 64-bit OS
