Win7 has officially retired, with some choosing to stick with it, some opting to upgrade to Win10 and others to switch to Linux.
Canonical behind Ubuntu sent Rhys Davies, the product manager of the hardware team, to lobby those win7 users to install the Ubuntu system. According to the manager, there is no need to upgrade the hardware of win7 to replace Ubuntu. Common chrome browsers, spotify, blender, Skype, etc. all have corresponding versions. Users can switch seamlessly.
Not only that, some companies in South Korea devoted to compiling Linux distribution have also increased their publicity.
Tmax, the company behind tmaxos, said that the number of downloads of its own system increased significantly in the two days of win7's retirement.
In fact, long before win7 stopped, these system manufacturers began to lobby Korean government departments, scientific organizations, educational institutions, etc., urging them to switch to a lower cost Linux distribution. At present, tmaxos has been deployed in Korea post, infrastructure Promotion Committee and other institutions; gureum OS covers Korea Institute of marine technology, Naval Academy, etc.; hamonikr has also entered many universities and even the Ministry of national defense.
