Random Pagan Verse:
I know an eleventh:
when I lead to battle Old comrades in-arms,
I have only to chant it behind my shield,
And unwounded they go to war,
Unwounded they come from war,
Unscathed wherever they are.

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.
