PC makers allowed to ship Windows 7 consumer PCs until October

SuperSite for Windows reports Microsoft will allow OEMs to ship consumer PCs with Windows 7 until October 31, 2014. The cut-off date for business PCs with Windows 7 is yet to be determined.
First, Windows 8 is the most poorly received version of Windows since Windows Vista, and there are fears that if Microsoft doesn't fix this OS through a series of subsequent free updates, it may trigger a further decline in PC sales.

And second, the firm erroneously revealed that it had halted Windows 7 sales to PC makers late last year, triggering worries that Microsoft was forcing Windows 8 on its customers in a new way. In December, however, Microsoft announced that it hadn't really ceased sales to PC makers and that its Windows 7 lifecycle support page had been changed in error. At the time, it said that it had yet to determine the end of sales date for PCs with Windows 7 preinstalled.
