Microsoft revealed on its Windows lifecycle fact sheet page (via WinBeta) that sales of computers coming with a previous version of the operating system will end next year, so should you decide to purchase a new PC beyond this date, you have no other option than to go for Windows 10.

PCs with Windows 7 and 8.1 pre-installed will no longer be available after October 31, 2016, which means that we still have around 12 months left to grab one. Computers with Windows 8 will also be discontinued on June 30, 2016, but this isn?t such a big deal anyway, given the fact that 8.1 is also available.

?End of sales refers to the date when a particular version of Windows is no longer shipped to retailers or Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs). Examples of OEMS are Dell and Toshiba?PC manufacturers who often preinstall Windows software,? Microsoft explains.
