    Hopefully, a tweak or fix will be released that will allow us to do with Windows 7 for another 3 years like we were able to do with Windows XP Pro for another 5 years. ;) (y)

    I did some researching.
    If a computer is running Windows 7 Pro SP1, it's possible the Windows Embedded POSReady 7 updates can be made use of.
    POSReady 2009 updates were able to be made use in Windows XP Pro SP3 and extend its life for 5 years - May 2014 through April 2019.
    POSReady 7 updates could possibly extend the life of Windows 7 Pro SP1 for almost 2 years - February 2020 through October 2021.
    We will find out in about a year.
