Although the date that end Windows 7's life cycle is pretty far from now (Jan, 2020)
What do you think will happen then?

Life will go on, the planet will continue spinning, new Windows 10 builds will be released and it will be business as usual.

Or did you expect something else?

*hehe* *hehe* *hehe* you started my day (Thanks). I guess he was talking about what impact will it have in the informatic world, if will it happen same as XP (Which even today lasts very well [3% Market]), or if will the companies abandon it like Windows 98 (Which was abandoned very soon after the release of XP SP2). What role will Windows 7 make in the computer world and how will it decay (Or raise). That is the "something else" that he was expecting.

Since Windows XP was supported by almost any application untill 2015 and it was released in 2001 (sp3 in 2003) probably the same will happen to 7 (support untill ~2022-2023)

Well naturally the world will slowly abandon it as newer tech gives way, new security holes are discovered (that are no longer patched for Windows 7 by Microsoft) and so on. How many people today run Windows NT 4.0 as their main OS? Windows 2000? Windows 95?

It will slowly die and be only remembered by historians, fans, nerds, collectors and the odd nutcase trying to cram DirectX 12, NVMe and whatever additional future tech into it.

In fact, tutorial about NVMe was made by Intel https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en ... orage.html
When applications stop supporting Windows 7, the same will happen with 8.1, so users will be forced to switch to 10… or become more aware about privacy (recent Facebook events, for instance) and switch to Linux if they aren't gamers. But I doubt it.

I say it because you wrote 2018, no 2008

I except something similar to the XP end of life. People make unofficial service packs to try keeping it alive and other smaller businesses/schools keep using it until they can afford a mass upgrade but eventually everyone moves on to 10 and 7 is abandonware and it's beta builds slowly leaked.

I don't know if 7 to 10 will happen as quickly as XP to 7. Lots of IT departments are weary of Microsoft's software as a service model, the push for the cloud, and the division between regular and LTSB.

Like Microsoft says, there will not other versions after Windows 10 (personnally, I don't trust Microsoft), so, the community will continue to modify Windows Seven, like they done with Windows XP and Vista. That's my impression of all of this.

A more interesting question is what will happen after Windows 10 EOL on October 14, 2025 in light of what Microsoft said regarding Windows 10 being the "last version".

Microsoft retracted their EOL date after announcing “Windows-as-a-service” (WAAS).
They've abandoned the triannual major update scheme for a “Modern Lifecycle”. Windows has already transitioned, Office is in progress, and (if the rumors are true) Xbox will soon begin.
10 will probably work similar to OS X (even their names are similar!) – as one product or platform that continues to slowly evolve. Consumer copies use the semi-annual update branch, receiving the next edition while the last one eventually falls out of support. With the WAAS model, Microsoft will supposedly update systems running 10 in perpetuity, though it’s unclear for exactly how long.
