there has been a steady trickle of refugees,
- who have found there way into the world of Linux O/Ss.

you'd be surprised on just how many, still don't know about the abandonment of their favourite O/S, though.

Yes, it's the MSE which puts that message there. Surprised they didn't do an last update to XP system itself to put a nag notice up.

This thread should me moved to "Computer related jokes". Reason? Not such messages from MSE about Linux. Yes, I know today is Fool's day :wink:
There any can found how real message looks:

Mainstream support for W7 ended on January 15. That means no new features will be added to W7. It will still be supported with security updates and other things until 2020.
Leaving mainstream support only means that Windows 7 won't be receiving any new features or product tweaks, such as the impressing-sounding DirectX 12 gaming technology slated to launch with Windows 10. You won't be able to call Microsoft for free help if you run into an issue with Windows 7 either.

Once a Windows desktop operating system leaves mainstream support, it enters the extended support phase—the very same support phase that Windows XP found itself in from early 2009 until its death earlier this year.

This was the incentive for my parents to look at alternatives to Windows instead of throwing away a perfectly good computer. I wasn't a Linux Mint user for very long but I was so happy with it that they got interested. They ended up buying new computers anyway but they let me have one of their old ones, so I put Mint on it and donated it to a my church's school.
