>Going forward, as new silicon generations are introduced, they will require the latest Windows platform at that time for support... Windows 10 will be the only supported Windows platform on Intel's upcoming "Kaby Lake" silicon, Qualcomm's upcoming "8996" silicon, and AMD's upcoming "Bristol Ridge" silicon.
Shit like this just makes me depressed. It's so obvious no one wants 10, but they just keep shoving it down our throats any way they can. Microsoft has fully embraced the tactics of the jews, but they're not even trying to be subtle about it. The fact that they can strong-arm so hard is frustrating.

If people really wanted 10, 7's market share would have dipped a lot, which it hasn't.
Please do go on about all the Enterprise customers who rushed out to upgrade to 10. Oh wait, none of them are. If you read the article you'd know that this is mostly an attempt to force enterprise into windows 10 and consumers are getting caught in the crossfire, conveniently targeted as well.
God I hope so. I plan to use 7 until 2020 at the very least, but I don't want to be stuck with weaker hardware. I'm already 4-5 years behind on CPU hardware as is. Was really looking forward to the AM4 motherboards and m.2 and NVMe.

x86/64 CPUs are OS agnostic. Stupid PR flick of saying we won't be releasing chipset drivers for Win7/8 which can be obtained through 3rd parties anyway.
>x86/64 CPUs are OS agnostic.
I was thinking this as well. There shouldn't be any way to stop 7 users. If they introduce some kind of retroactive lockout for certain SKUs, then nothing is to stop someone from uninstalling the update or better yet just not updating immediately until you know what's in the update like anyone who's smart has known for years now.
