As of today, Windows 7 is officially dead.
The ex-operating system had a good 10-year run, and while Microsoft is discontinuing official support including security updates and technical assistance, a reported 440 million people are still using it.
Those users are being urged – and have been urged for several months now – to upgrade to Windows 10 to avoid cyber attacks.
But today, Twitter spent a lot of time reminiscing about the good ol’ times, many describing Windows 7 as the best OS Microsoft ever offered.

Some people suggest Windows 10 has big shoes to fill:
Rest in peace #Windows7. We had the best of times. You was always there for me in times of need. You never let me down. Now we can only hope your little brother Windows10 is half the man you were. pic.twitter.com/I1DI9hUTvQ
