    Microsoft Retires Windows 7: This Is How You Can Still Get A Copy

    Microsoft is slowly decommissioning its former Windows flagship. Since October 31st, the consumer editions of Windows 7, as well as Windows 7 Ultimate, have officially been retired. If you don’t want to move on to Windows 8.1 with your next hardware upgrade, we’ve got some options for you.

    Buy A Windows 7 License: OEM, Retail, Or Second Hand
    In a previous article on how to obtain a legal copy of Windows 7, we recommended you to look into online retailers or second-hand options. Be extra careful with the former. Retailers are no longer permitted to hand out OEM versions for Windows 7 Starter or Home editions. Moreover, if you don’t want to violate the terms of service, OEM licenses are off limits for personal use for all editions of Windows 7!

    Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 system builder software does not permit personal use, and is intended only for preinstallation on customer systems that will be sold to end users.

    f you do find a cheap and legitimate offer for a standard retail copy, whether it’s a second-hand consumer (Home) or first-hand business (Professional, Enterprise, Ultimate) edition, render yourself lucky.
