Windows 7: How much will the continued support costs


As you already know, Microsoft stops supporting Windows 7 with updates security from 2020.

Of course the company will offer security updates to the operating system for any device used by customers (businesses) who are willing to pay for the updates after the end of Windows 7 support on January 14, 2020.

Recently, Microsoft seems to have announced to some of its partners the cost of these extended support updates (ESUs), and as one would expect, they are not cheap, especially for customers who want to apply them to multiple computers.

Microsoft executives have announced that they will have security updates in Windows 7 for three years, ie until January 2023. They will be security fixes like the ones that Microsoft provides for free to Windows 7 users with "Extended" Support until January 14, 2020.

For customers of Windows 10 Enterprise and Microsoft 365, Microsoft will have Windows 7 ESUs as an "add-on", according to information announced by Microsoft to its partners.

Windows 7 Price List

In the first year (January 2020 - 2021), the add-on will cost $ 25 per device. In the second year (January 2021 - 2022) the price will reach $ 50 per device, and in the third year (January 2022 to January 2023) updates will cost $ 100 per device.

For users with Windows 10 Pro rather than Windows 10 Enterprise, these update prices will be significantly higher. In the first year, they will cost 50 per device. The second, $ 100 per device, and the third $ 200 per device.

These prices assure the company's customers that they will receive cumulative security updates in Windows 7 over the course of a year. If customers decide to buy a support package in the 2nd or 3rd year, they will have to pay for the previous years as well.

The above information were published by ZDNet's Mary Jo Foley, and a Microsoft spokeswoman said:

"Our customers should work with the Microsoft sales team for more pricing details."
