Previously, there was a note in the support section of the infobox that said support for Windows 7 on Skylake and newer CPUs is restricted. Later this sentence was removed when Microsoft removed the restriction for Skylake CPUs. This was mistake. Let's look at what the article currently says:
Microsoft retracted the decision and stated that it would continue to support Windows 7 and 8.1 on Skylake hardware through the end of their extended support lifecycle. However, the restrictions on newer CPU microarchitectures remain in force.

Support period has ended?
Concerning consumer support ending, neither of the "ending Jan 13, 2015" citations point to anything that works.
Moreover, our page implies that the support period has ended for consumer versions, yet a 2012 PC World article says it has not: Windows 7's consumer editions were due to drop off the support list on Jan. 13, 2015, a deadline that has now been moved to Jan. 14, 2020. — Cpiral§Cpiral 20:02, 4 November 2017 (UTC)
- The information in this Wikipedia article is fully accurate. Windows 7's mainstream support (phone support, new features) ended in January 2015, and extended support (security patches) will most likely end in 2020. The change described in the article you linked is reflected in these dates. Warren -talk- 21:04, 4 November 2017 (UTC)
- Hello. :)
- My investigations lead to the conclusion that Warren is right.
- As for the citations, the Microsoft Support page works perfectly well. The other article by Stephen Rose is probably suffering from a downtime. If it didn't recover in a few days, I advise reviving it with Wayback Machine or better yet, use the Computerworld article.
- Best regards,
