The only way I see them keeping this date is if Windows 10 is a smashing success (which is possible because it is the tock in their tick-tock cycle of good OSes). Even if 10 is a success I still think they push the end date to 2022 or even 23. There are so many large corporations and businesses that have just finished or are just completing switching to 7 from XP. I know they have special service contracts but even so, people are going to want to bask in Windows 7 light for another decade.

The company I work for has just finally finished replacing Windows XP with 7. What we’re going to do when 7 dies, I don’t know. I keep hoping we’ll make the switch to a decent GNU/Linux distro (If they ask my opinion, I will point them to Xubuntu), rather than hassle with copying files, reinstalling programs, and going through the typical driver hell.

Any serious company has an IT support contract with a local IT support business. Even if you were to move to Linux, it’s still a big undertaking with software reinstalls, employees to learn the new GUI and so on. You’re still going to need an IT support contract.
