It's all about money, remember that. So let's get a petition going where we say we are willing to pay for continuing support. Each one that is, pays a fee, one time for many years or on a yearly basis (probably the best seller). If enough of us sign up, they will have no excuse not to continue support of Windows 7. Personally, I do not like at all any of the latest versions. Alternatively, we could crowd source a firm to do it. Now Windows may be stubern. At that point we can crowd suit them: We bought their product, we are willing to pay for support past it's reasonable lifetime (in their opinion), so I would think it is a tort for them not to accept a reasonable offer to continue supporting it.
