    Wow, I thought that Win 7 PCs were already a thing of the past.. Interesting. I guess that's not bad that they're letting things go on another year. I am surprised actually.

    Will you still be able to buy and install Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 or have Microsoft recalled Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 and replaced them with Windows 10.

    As long as inventory of existing 7 & 8.1 machines lasts, you can still buy one for the next year....

    I think you misread I was talking about Windows 7 and 8,1 Disks to install the operating System on Machines

    I have no idea about disks. The article is about selling off existing inventory of 7 and 8.1 machines for another year.

    One used to be able to get ISO's from Digital River, but I doubt that's possible anymore...

    The End of Sales chart shows that only Win7 Pro and Win8.1 disks are available until October 31, 2016 as per this note:
