So..... Forbes has released an article about Microsoft's confirmation of a Windows 7 Monthly fee. This fee will start after the Windows 7 support end date, January 14th 2020. The fee will increase in price each year. To Read: Microsoft 'Confirms' Windows 7 New Monthly Charge
Two sides of the coin: (I'm sure there are more reasons, but this is all I can think of right now)
Good: for some people/companies that don't want to change the OS (especially businesses since it would be pricey to get multiple licences) can get security support for their data after the closing support date
Bad: Depends on monthly fee and many people will not want to pay for extra support.
EDIT: Let me know if this topic needs to be moved to the Operating system section. I will move it accordingly.
