Microsoft’s Marketing Chief Terms Windows 7 Unsafe

The tech giant strongly recommends switching to Windows 10 to avoid these issues.

Windows 7 is Microsoft’s most popular operating system to date and is still running on 55% of all the PCs, but it seems its maker isn’t feeling very happy about it. Recently, Microsoft’s marketing chief Chris Capossela described Windows 7 as unsafe due to security and compatibility issues that have been fixed in Windows 10.

“We do worry when people are running an operating system that’s 10 years old that the next printer they buy isn’t going to work well, or they buy a new game, they buy Fallout 4, a very popular game, and it doesn’t work on a bunch of older machines,” Capossela stated while speaking to Windows Weekly.

He further said that those who are using Windows 7 have to use it at their own risk.

Capossela believes that it is “so incredibly important to try to end the fragmentation of the Windows install base” and to switch users towards safer operating system.

According to a recent article published on Forbes, the statement is nothing but a new tactic to convince Windows 7 to upgrade to Windows 10. Microsoft wants its latest operating system to be installed on at least one billion devices within the first few years of its release. The recent statement from the company’s high-profile figure shows that the company is ready to do anything to achieve its target.
